Call for Entries: Sustainable Development Photo and Video Storytelling

UNU-FLORES is inviting photographers and videographers of all levels to submit stories that relate to the Resource Nexus.

Tying in with the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development 2021, the UNU Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES) and Technische Sammlungen Dresden aim to mobilise professional and amateur photographers and videographers to advocate for sustainability through a storytelling contest. Photographers and videographers of all levels are invited to submit stories that relate to the Resource Nexus and one or more of the following themes:

  • Agriculture
  • Forests
  • Circular Economy
  • Climate Change
  • Biodiversity

Submissions should do one or both of the following:

  • Showcase the impact of any of the above on the Resource Nexus or vice versa
  • Showcase positive action for sustainable development

Winning entries with cash prizes worth up to 2,000 euros will be judged based on their relevance to the themes, originality and creativity, and inspirational power or potential social impact. They will be showcased in a physical exhibition at the Technische Sammlungen Dresden and in a digital gallery, and will also be used in UNU-FLORES publications.

See the UNU-FLORES website for more information and submission details.
