Do you enjoy taking photos and are you curious about the environment and concerned about climate change? Then, you may have what it takes to win one of our annual photo competitions!

Our photo competitions in a nutshell

Every year, the EEA organises a photo competition that attracts thousands of people who capture their take and stories through the camera lens in their own unique and creative way. It is one of our main outreach activities, which enables people to become active participants in raising awareness and in helping to shed light on pressing environmental issues and the necessity to preserve nature.

Participation is free of charge. Participants are invited to send their best photos via a specific form and compete to win a cash prize. The photos collected through the competitions are used in our products, on our website and in other communication channels.

Note that all participants have to be at least 18 years old and citizens of one of the 32 EEA member countries or six cooperating countries, including the 27 EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Türkiye, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia.
