Join #BackClimateAction competition and win a photography masterclass with Getty Images in London

What does climate change mean to you?

.

If you can sum it up in a photo, take part in the new #BackClimateAction image competition to be in with a chance of winning a photography masterclass with Getty Images in London.

.

 

Run by the UK Government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), this new image competition is your opportunity to use photography to tell your climate change story.

.

Rather than melting ice caps and polar bears, which are often the images that first spring to mind, DECC are looking for images that illustrate how you think climate change might impact the things you care most about in your day-to-day life. Think about the following questions before submitting your entry…

.

 

  • What do you most want to protect from the impacts of climate change?
  • What feeling does climate change provoke?
  • What can tackling climate change lead to?

.

The judging panel includes TV Scientist, Professor Alice Roberts, Creative Director at Getty Images, Anthony Holland Parkin and Photographer and contributor to @everydayclimatechange on Instagram, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert.

.

The winning entry will be the image that challenges us to re-imagine climate change in the most original and engaging way.

.

 

First prize is a photography masterclass with Getty Images in London. Five runners-up will win a pair of tickets to the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in London and a Getty ‘Year in Focus’ book.

.

 

To enter….

.

  1. Take a picture that illustrates what climate change means to you
  2. Write a caption of no more than 80 words that describes what the image is, where it is, and why it illustrates climate change to you
  3. Include the #BackClimateAction hashtag so your entry can be tracked
  4. Post it on Instagram
