Extension of Deadline for Pacific Photo Competition

The COP23 Presidency Secretariat is extending the deadline for the Pacific Photo Competition to 25 August to give those interested in participating an extra week to submit their photos.

We encourage both professional and amateur photographers alike to take part in the competition for the opportunity to have their work displayed on the global stage. The selected photographs will be displayed prominently at COP23 in Bonn, Germany, to highlight the impacts of climate change in the Pacific to delegates and attendees from around the world.

All relevant information about the competition can be found on the COP23 website.

Participants are reminded that the photographs they submit should show:

  1. The human and/or environmental impacts of climate change; OR
  2. How individuals and groups are mobilising to counter the threat posed by climate change

The photographs should also be submitted with a short caption that explains where the photograph was taken, what the photograph depicts, and how it relates to the impacts of and responses to climate change. Photographs should also be high-resolution at least 300 dpi at 3,000 pixels on the longest side.

We would like to thank all those who have already submitted their photographs. We have been very impressed with the quality and range of subject-matter showcased. Winning entries will be notified the week of 28 August.
