Let’s get creative and inspire change

We all know that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ – so we’ve been getting creative when it comes to combatting climate change. Ahead of the UN’s climate change conference COP26, we’ve been hosting a series of photography, art and creative challenges to inspire change and open meaningful discussions around what it means to create a cleaner, healthier world.

And we’ve been getting everyone involved, including…

We joined forces with Talent House to launch a challenge like no other. We asked creators all over the world to produce authentic images that captured the moments where people had positively impacted our planet to create a cleaner, healthier world. These could be in the form of photographic stills or GIFs – the sky was the limit!

Almost 2,000 entries were submitted from over 80 countries. The winning four will be featured at COP26 – in front of some of the world’s most important decisionmakers, activists and policymakers - and used across our social media and digital channels. They will also be receiving the winning prizemoney of £3,000. What a prize!

Our creative colleagues also got ‘in on the action’, as we hosted an internal challenge that saw 300 incredible photographs submitted.

The judges whittled them down to three winning snaps that they felt had perfectly captured: ‘a cleaner, healthier world’.

…children and young people
You’re never too young to become a sustainable superhero. So we collaborated with Untitled to challenge young people to set their creativity free for a very special climate change challenge.

Children and young people between the ages of seven and 18 could be in with the chance of winning £350 of environmentally-friendly products by submitting a piece of artwork (a drawing, painting, piece of digital artwork or photograph) that describes how they believe we can create a cleaner, healthier world.

The challenge is open until the 17th November 5:00PM! Click here to enter: Untitled | Get Creative about Climate Change! (talenthouse.com) Selected Creators will be announced on the 10th December.
