UNFCCC/CDM International Photo, Video and Podcast Contest 2012

The UNFCCC invites you to participate in a contest that aims to select extraordinarily good ways of highlighting the benefits of the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism. The three categories of the contest aim to inspire participants to communicate a complex message in a way that might surprise or even awaken people. We’re looking for striking images, impressive videos and interesting podcasts that showcase CDM projects or their related benefits.

The winning works will be displayed in a dedicated booth at the UNFCCC Climate Change Conference in Doha in December 2012, while short-listed entries could feature prominently in important print and promotional material, on the UNFCCC website and other platforms, such as Facebook Twitter, YouTube, iTunes, Soundcloud etc. If you can illustrate the benefits of the CDM in a simple and exciting way then share your submission with us! Show off your work, show off the benefits of the CDM, and help promote sustainable development and greenhouse gas emission reductions.
