The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) have launched a photo competition on the theme “Wind in Mind”. It’s purpose is to show wind energy technology in a new way.
The competition is open to all, and the winner will receive a €1,000 Amazon voucher and 5 runners up will each receive €250 vouchers. All the winning pictures will be displayed outdoors the EU area of Brussels. The overall winning photo will also become part of an online professional photography collection, and be published in renewable energy newspaper ‘Recharge‘ and in the European wind energy industry magazine ‘Wind Directions‘. The winners will be around Global Wind Day (15 June), the annual day promoting the power of the wind around the world.
Wind turbines are an icon: symbols of the fight against climate change, of sustainability, of our modern age. While some people noisily oppose wind turbines there are many others who love them and find them a graceful addition to our landscape
…says Julian Scola, Communication Director of the European Wind Energy Association, joint organisers of the Global Wind Day alongside the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).
Lauha Fried, Communications Director at GWEC, highlighted the global nature of the competition: “Wind power is an essential source of clean energy in over 80 countries today – we’d like to see photos taken from all around the world and encourage everyone to participate by sending us your best shots. A new feature for this year’s edition is the continental subcategory where a winner will be chosen for each continent”.
The competition is open until 6 May. Competition details on www.globalwindday.org.
