Art Partner is calling for young creatives to artistically respond to the climate crisis through a variety of mediums.
The contest – #CreateCOP25 – is open to young creatives and climate activists, between the ages of 14-30, to submit artistic responses to the environment and climate emergency.
The six most impactful works will be publicised during the United Nation’s COP25 climate conference this December in Chile. These will serve as messages from the creative community that the time is now for governments to end their contribution to climate change.
According to Art Partner, work submissions can come in the form of photography projects, docu-style and experimental film, performance art, spoken word, musical compositions, fashion design, new media and social media projects. One winner will receive a cash prize of $10,000 and five runner-ups will get $2,000 each to fund future projects that respond to climate change.
Launching the contest, Art Partner said: “The next two COPs (COP25 in Chile this year and COP26 in Glasgow next year) are critical to ensure developed countries end their contribution to climate change and commit to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Yet, progress is slow and, for many, the conference remains unknown.
“The purpose of #CreateCOP25 is two fold: to raise the public profile of COP25 and to advance the call for climate action from the creative communities.”
The deadline for submissions is Friday 8 November. You can find out more about the contest and how to submit your project on the #CreateCOP25 page on the Art Partner website.
