Deadline: 4 November 2023

Submit your #PlanetEarth photos and #ClimateSolutions videos!

In support of the United Nations ActNow campaign, one of the world’s leading digital awards platforms is inviting individuals and organizations across the globe to share their best videos and photos showcasing projects, ideas and actions to tackle the climate crisis.

The Climate Awards by Agora aim to inspire the world and its leaders to unite in the fight for a better future for our planet. “In an indirect yet powerful way, we, the people, are showing our leaders and governments how to collaboratively create a better world,” says Octavi Royo, founder and CEO of Agora.

According to Royo, the best artistic creations are a powerful tool to generate social change. “We all know of songs that have transformed societies, we remember images that have changed the world, and have watched movies that have had a lifelong impact on us,” he said.

“We invite people to show us their climate action and inspire others. Because, when we pull together, we have much more power to influence change,” says Nanette Braun, director of campaigns at the United Nations.

Submit your photos and videos through the Agora mobile app in accordance with the contest rules and guidelines, through 4 November 2023.

The Climate Awards will be given in two categories: a #PlanetEarth Photography Award which celebrates the breathtaking beauty of our planet, and a #ClimateSolutions Video Award, showcasing climate projects by organizations and individuals.

In each category, a people’s award will be based on popular votes on the app, and a jury award will be selected by a panel of experts in the fields of the arts and climate, including Ingmar Rentzhog (We Don’t Have Time), Zoë Red (Creatives For Climate), and Lucy Almond (Nature4Climate). The photo and video winners will be invited to present their work at the UN SDG Pavilion during COP28 in Dubai. Additionally, the photographs and videos of all the finalists will be on display at the conference venue.
