UNEP Invites You to Enter and Win A Trip To Abu Dhabi


Eye on Earth blog and data visualization competitions now open!

Eye on Earth (EoE) is taking three winners to the 2015 EoE Summit in Abu Dhabi to show off their environmental vision to global movers and shakers who can put them in motion.

Make Yourself and the Environment a Winner by:

Writing a blog entry; or
Creating an image that explains data

So which one will you enter?
1. Data Visualization: Are you an artist, designer, or a creative? This challenge invites you to submit data visualizations that interpret the social and economic effects of poor air quality, oceanic warming and natural disasters. Examples can include paintings and other artistic interpretations, as well as infographics, 3D models, computer simulations, interactive maps and diagrams. The winning team will be given the opportunity to present their work at the Eye on Earth Summit.
2. Blog Competition: If writing is more your style, tell us your vision or experience of “A better world through knowledge and information”, in 750 – 1,000 words posted on your blog and shared with Eye on Earth. The winner of the blog competition will travel to the Summit in Abu Dhabi as the official blogger, and have the opportunity to report live on the event for the global public.

Enter now and let us celebrate your ideas.

Entries close August 20, 2015.

These are the first two in a series of competitions launched by the Eye on Earth Alliance, in the lead up to the Summit to be held in Abu Dhabi on October 6-8, 2015.
