ACCCRN 2017 Photo Essay Competition
The 2017 ACCCRN Photo Essay Competition was seeking great pictures on urban climate change resilience issues from photographers, practitioners, and those working on climate change in Asia and based in Asia. ACCCRN wanted to promote understanding of urban resilience by creating opportunities for people to share their experiences or concern from their perspectives. The competition’s goal was to showcase stories about resilience issues in the field through a series of still images.
The competition format is the photo essay. A photo essay is a set or series of photographs that is intended to tell the viewer a story. The photos can be sequential in a particular order or non-ordered photographs which may be viewed all at once to reveal the whole story. The photographers also should be able to write clear narrative on each photo so that the viewer can understand the story and get the intended message.
Between February and early March 2017, we were sifting through the many impressive submissions for the 2017 ACCCRN Photo Essay Competition. Will Bugler, a Senior Consultant and Communications Lead at Acclimatise, and the ACCCRN Network team, reviewed each submission and selected the 2017 ACCCRN Photo Competition Winner.
On the 20th March to 24th March 2017, ACCCRN members voted for three shortlisted photo essays for the People’s Choice Winner.
Here are the results:
