Official rules of the One Planet photo contest

Participate in the One Planet Network Photo Contest!

As you know, the One Planet network is working to create a global movement towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP)! As champions of this integrated approach to the entire sustainable development agenda, we all know that the shift to SCP is key to our planet, our societies and our economy. But what does SCP actually look like?

Do you have pictures that you or your partners that have taken that illustrate ‘SCP in Action’? For example, has your activity or initiative created decent work for members of a local community?  Can you [virtually] introduce us to members from your team who are actively making a difference in their daily work? Can you show us something from ‘behind the scenes’ in a factory or workplace that practices efficient production? Do you have an image that truly captures the impact of the culture and lifestyle that is at the heart of SCP?  If so, please submit your photos through the online reporting tool [accessible from your MySCP dashboard which you see in the upper right of the screen] to enter the first One Planet Network Photo Contest, ‘SCP in Action!’

The Competition in a Snapshot:

  1. Pictures of ‘SCP in Action’ can only be submitted through the One Planet Online Reporting tool.
  2. One image per One Planet network programme will be selected as an official winner.
  3. 2019’s cross-cutting theme for the entire One Planet network is Food. This is an additional category that all relevant submitted images will automatically be considered for.  [link to cross-cutting topic to be added at a later time]
  4. To enter the competition, please review the full competition rules, simply upload  photos through the reporting tool [accessible from your MySCP dashboard which you see in the upper right of the screen] with the  full name of the photographer, their e-mail and a caption that describes the image (i.e. location, name(s) of individuals depicted, description of the activity, etc.) 
  5. A minimum of 7 winning photographs will be selected. Depending on the number and quality of the images received, additional winners may be selected. Both shortlisted and winning photos are likely to be considered for future One Planet network publications and awareness-raising campaigns.
  6. For the top 7 winning image selections, the photos will be featured in a United Nations photo exhibition.
