ICC Photographic Award 2015: One month to submission deadline
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Photographic Award 2015 is a celebration of artistic skill and outstanding photography which aims to draw attention to—and stimulate dialogue around—the global challenge of climate change.
The Award invites professional and amateur photographers from all over the world to submit applications reflecting on the theme of #OurClimate: from the causes and impacts of a changing climate, through to our response (past, present or future) to one of the biggest challenges facing humanity.
John Danilovich, ICC Secretary General said: “This is an exciting year to hold our inaugural Photographic Award. With over 100 photographers already entering this truly global competition, I look forward to the exhibition of works at our global headquarters during COP21.”
Mr Danilovich will chair a distinguished international jury which includes ICC Chairman Terry McGraw, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres, British environmentalist David de Rothschild,
avant-garde artist Naziha Mestaoui, photojournalist Ami Vitale, and ITC Executive Director Arancha Gonzalez.

The judging panel will award three prizes:

- ICC Young Photographer of the Year (26 years and under): €1,000
