We want to bring more attention and awareness to the global community through photography, and your photo could be selected from the One Shot: Climate Change competition to be exhibited at various high-profile locations around the world to continue to bring attention to the impacts of climate change through photography.
Climate change advocacy has already begun. Hossein Farmani and Susan Baraz from the Lucie Foundation curated an exhibition called “A Look at Climate Change” for COP21 at the C40 Mayors Summit (a gathering of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change) held in Mexico City from November 30th to December 2nd, 2016. 

A selection of 100 images taken by youth for the “Your Shot” competition through National Geographic’s online photo community was curated and on display at the United Nations Climate Summit in Marrakech, Morocco from November 7th to 18th 2016. Key players in the global scene such as US Secretary of State John Kerry were in attendance at the conference. The exhibition was curated by the Lucie Foundation and National Geographic, and featured images showing the melting ice in Antarctica and Ireland, droughts and floods in Pakistan and reservoirs drying up in France. All skill levels were represented–from semi-professional photographers to camera phone artists.
The Extended deadline for the Climate Change Competition is December 15, 2016.  Earlier, our website listed an incorrect deadline and we would like to apologize for any confusion but ask for your support and help in spreading the word to your photographer friends to submit work to this important cause.
