ACCCRN 2017 Photo Essay Competition: “Urban Interaction with Ecosystem Services”

ACCCRN invites photographers to submit photo essays to share their stories related to urban interaction with ecosystem services towards urban resilience.

The 2017 ACCCRN Photo Essay Competition is seeking great pictures on urban climate change resilience issues from photographers, practitioners, and those working on climate change in Asia and based in Asia. We want to promote understanding of urban resilience by creating opportunities for people to share their experiences or concern from their perspectives.

The competition’s goal is to showcase stories about resilience issues in the field through a series of still images. The selection committee and jury will be seeking a sequence of images that conveys a compelling story or message. Each image should be strong enough to stand on its own while conveying a greater narrative when viewed in the photographer’s desired sequence. It is important that the story-teller think about what they want to say and how one photograph links to the next or to each other.

Submit your photos before 5 March 2017.
