Wind energy is more than a technology. It captures the imagination, inspires, fascinates and captivates.
We have received hundreds of submissions to the Global Wind Day photo competition which has closed on 12 May.
Winners of the competition will be announced the week before Global Wind Day. They will receive Amazon vouchers as well as their photographs featured in renewable energy publication ‘Recharge’ and EWEA’s magazine, Wind Directions. In addition, the winning selection will be put on display in the European Parliament in Brussels as well as our social media platforms and website.
Mark Edwards runs the Hard Rain Project, which supports public exhibitions and other communications that campaign for realistic solutions to the interlinked problems of climate change, poverty, the wasteful use of resources, population expansion, habitat destruction and species loss. The winning photo of Wind in Mind will be have a permanent place in the online photo archive at www.hardrainproject.com
