Indigneous photographers under 30 years old are invited to submit their images depicting a theme of climate change and climate action for the World Intellectual Property Organization photography contest.
Photographs should show the impact of climate change on a specific community, or Indigeous adaptation or mitigation to the impacts of climate change.
“Participation is meant to encourage Indigenous peoples and local community youth to express themselves on this issue of immense global significance,” the WIPO press release reads.
The first place winner will receive photography equipment valued at $3,500. Second and third place winners will receive equipment worth $2,500 and $1,500, respectively.
Eligible participants must be under 30 years old, and a member of an Indgienous community.
Five judges will select winning photographs based on the following criteria: adherence to theme, expression of theme, overall impact, originality, creativity, artistic expression, personal expression, and visual appeal.
The deadline for submissions is January 22. Winning participants will be notified by email and the official announcement of the winners will follow on April 22.

The truth about Indian Boarding Schools
This month, we’re asking our readers to help us raise $10,000 to fund our year-long journalism initiative called “The Indian Boarding School Project: A Dark Chapter in History.” Our mission is to shine a light on the dark era of forced assimilation of native American children by the U.S. government and churches. You’ll be able to read stories each week and join us for Livestream events to understand what the Indian Boarding School era has meant to Native Americans — and what it still means today.
This news will be provided free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution of any amount — big or small — gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change. Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
