IAIA17 Photo Contest


The IAIA17 Photo Contest, focusing on the conference theme of climate change, aims to encourage networking among conference participants by exchanging views about climate change.

It will also be an opportunity to share great photos of people, communities, natural environments, events, and more from all over the world. Photographers are invited to illustrate the many aspects affected by climate change and the efforts made to mitigate its effects and adapt.

Photos can be submitted under the following categories: sources of climate change; impacts of climate change; vulnerability and ethics; adaptation and resilience; risk and disasters.

A sample of the photos received and accepted for the contest will be presented during a slideshow at the IAIA17 welcome reception and conference banquet. The winning photos will be displayed at the conference and will also be published on the websites of IAIA and AQÉI.
