CDM Changing Lives Photo Contest
We’re looking for striking images that showcase CDM projects or their related benefits for the CDM Changing Lives Photo Contest. Whether it’s a photo highlighting a climate-friendly project or related benefits in health, sanitation, infrastructure development, rural electrification or some other area, we want to see your vision of this remarkable mechanism.
The UNFCCC secretariat invites you to participate in a contest aimed at highlighting the benefits of the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism and the importance of market-based approaches in the international response to climate change. The two categories of the contest – photo and personal video – are meant to inspire participants to communicate a complex message in a way that might surprise, entertain and provoke thought. In short, we’re looking for striking images and interesting videos that showcase CDM projects or their related benefits.
If you can illustrate the benefits of the CDM in a simple and exciting way then share your submission with us! Show off your work, show off the benefits of the CDM, and help promote sustainable development and greenhouse gas emission reductions
Selection and final judging will be based on the following criteria:
Creativity and originality
Composition (technical excellence and quality)
Artistic merit (wow factor)
Content and persuasiveness in telling the story of the CDM on the theme “Changing Lives”.
Submitted images will undergo an initial selection by the contest organizers. The top 20 images will be scored by a panel of five judges, and the judges’ scores will be averaged to produce a final score. In the event of a tie for highest score, the entry with the higher artistic merit (wow factor) score will be deemed the winner.
