15 June marks Global Wind Day 2019, the day when we celebrate the global benefits that wind energy is bringing to communities around the world – both for today and tomorrow. With the world moving from the era of fossil fuel-based energy towards an increasingly decarbonised energy supply, wind energy is growing at an unprecedented rate.
Taking place this year on Saturday, 15 June, Global Wind Day is a worldwide event celebrating the success of wind energy. Organised by WindEurope and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Global Wind Day also gives members of the public the chance to participate in the wind energy success story via the annual photo competition.
The Global Wind Day photo competition offers major cash prizes to participants the winners. The theme of the competition is “Future Wind”, and aims to show the world how wind energy can slash emissions, improve air quality and create thousands of jobs.
There are four photo categories in the competition: “People and Wind”, “Working in Wind”, “Beautiful Wind”, and “Beyond Wind”. Each of the four photo categories comes with a cash prize of €1,000. To determine the winners, the judges will be looking at the creativity, content, composition and technique as well as a compelling story behind the photographs.
Deadline for submissions: Wednesday, 5 June 2019 (23:55 CEST)
