Decade of Change

Decade of Change aims to bring together photography, philanthropy, research and activism to address the climate crisis on a global collaborative scale. From humankind to wildlife and cityscapes to ecosystems, the award will explore both the strength and fragility of our planet — celebrating all that we have to protect, and cautioning all that we have to lose. Open to photographers and visual artists around the world, the culminating exhibition will tour internationally.
