Shoot Nations 2008 is a free global photographic competition addressing the theme of ‘Young People in a Changing Climate’. We want to build a global picture of how climate change is affecting young people worldwide, how they can act now to slow the change and how they can adapt to the inevitable changes in the future.
The winner will have a chance to win a trip to see their work exhibited in Quebec, Canada as part of the World Youth Congress on UN International Youth Day August 12.
‘Shoot Nations enables the smallest family, community or environmental issue to reach the highest level of global governance’
Competition closes Thursday 31st July at 6pm GMT.
The concept is simple:
Any young person aged 11 – 24 can take and enter three photos (or drawings) to express their feelings on the following three briefs:
1. How is climate change affecting your life?
2. Act now - be the change!
3. Your world in the future.
* No photography experience necessary
* You should enter one photo/drawing per brief and upload your entries to shootnations.org with a caption to explain what your photo is about
* The photos/drawings you submit must be taken by you.
* You can submit entries that were created before the competition start date.
