Global Wind Day photo contest will celebrate sector

Prizes of €1,000 on offer in annual photo competition to mark Global Wind Day

Global Wind Day is a worldwide event celebrating the success of wind energy. Organised by WindEurope and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Global Wind Day – to be held on 15 June – also gives members of the public the chance to participate in the wind energy success story via the annual photo competition.

The Global Wind Day photo competition offers major cash prizes to participants. The theme of the competition is WindVision, and aims to draw the attention of the public and policymakers to the power wind energy holds to alleviate many social, economic and environmental challenges. “Wind power generates lots of clean energy, but it also generates some amazing images,” says Steve Sawyer, secretary general of GWEC.

“The powerful sweep and majesty of the turbines themselves, as well as the awesome panoramas from atop a nacelle, provides both inspiration and determination to fight for a clean energy future.”

Each of the three photo categories comes with a prize of €1,000:

Local impact: photos should show how wind energy has benefitted your community

Boosting economies: photos should represent people working in the industry, factories or in wind installation.

Visionary wind: photos should show wind energy working in harmony with nature.

WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson says: “The Global Wind Day photo competition is a great initiative to highlight how wind energy is providing people with a cleaner future, today.”

Last year's winning three entries are shown in the carousel above to give you inspiration.

Share your #WindVision with the world, and join the worldwide celebration of wind on June 15!
