Art and photography are vital to close the emotional gap between society and our marine environment. With the Art & Photo Awards JPI Oceans wishes to bolster the role of both media in tackling the challenge of communicating about the environment covering most of our planet. Therefore we welcome entries addressing the three interconnected priority areas of JPI Oceans: Ocean Health, Ocean Productivity, and Ocean Stewardship & Governance.
The competition is organized in two categories: the open competition and the JPI Oceans projects competition. The competition is open to all forms of photography and art. Participants can utilise any form of visual art or photography (e.g. microscopic) and other tools (such as Photoshop or paint and brush) to enhance their image in order to successfully convey their views. The awarded photos will receive a prominent place in the JPI Oceans office, will be communicated through all JPI Oceans communication media and used at external events. In collaboration with ECO Magazine, winning entries of the Photo and Art awards will be included in the upcoming Spring issue of the magazine and will have an extended feature on the ECO website.
- For each category a top three will be selected with the winner being awarded a prize of – €1000.
- The two runner-ups will each be awarded a prize of €500.
- Anyone is welcome to join with visual artwork.
- The only requirement is that the art needs to address or reference at least one of the three interconnected priority areas of JPI Oceans: Ocean Health, Ocean Productivity, and Ocean Stewardship & Governance in any way or form.
