The EEA is committed to several initiatives with the aim of protecting the environment. The European Green Deal and EU Zero pollution action plan are only a few of them. For this reason, the agency is always looking for creating accessible spaces for everyone to increase awareness about climate change issues. In fact, this year has been the biggest competition ever with a total of 5,236 photos.
The competition consisted of photos that proved human connection with nature. The participants could send their top 5 photos to any category they wanted (air, water, land and sound) to win a prize of 1,000 euros. Every citizen of one of the EEA´s member countries over 18 years old, was able to be part of this award. There were other additional prizes for Best Youth Entry and Public's Favorite Photo that received 500 euros.
Look out at the winners photos selected by the environmental communications experts form the European Environment Information and Observation Network:
