The Society’s Climate Change Research Group has launched a competition seeking the most effective, original and engaging ways to encourage action on climate change.
Members of the Climate Change Research Group should put forward their most effective and engaging ways of communicating the issue of climate change including its impact, solutions, policy and education.
Entries will be judged by a panel of the group’s committee members, as well as Alan Evans, the Guardian’s Environment Editor, and Leo Hickman, Director and Editor of Carbon Brief. Winning entries will be published on these sites.
Entries can be short or long form journalism (800-1,200 words), be visual media based, or a combination of the two. Ideas for entries may include, but are not limited to, an op-ed presenting a new perspective on climate change, a photograph communicating the issue in a powerful and novel way, or a short video which captures the audience’s imagination about one or more issues related to climate change.
Entries should be aimed at engaging new audiences and to broaden understanding of those who are sceptical or unaware of climate change.
The competition is open to members of the Climate Change Research Group only. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 1 December.
To find out more about the competition, you can contact the group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
