Our honorable jury is ready with the selection of photos and the nominations for the Clima-Med Photo Contest 2018.

The regional competition, organised by Clima-Med in collaboration with the European Union, was launched on November 16 to bring awareness on how #climate is affecting daily life and landscapes in South-Mediterranean region, and to address the urgency of finding sustainable solutions to diminish the effects of human-induced climate change.

Three weeks later, it is time to announce the winners and say “a Big Thank You” to everyone who sent us photos depicting climate change effects and actions taken by South-Mediterranean neighbor countries, to tackle one of the most pressing issues of our time.

We received many great submissions, and choosing the best photo proved quite a challenge for us. Therefore, special appreciation goes to the esteemed photographer Wadih Chehaibar who was member of the jury.

Congratulations to the winners:

1st prize: Mohamed Rahman, Egypt

Mohamed Rahman, Egypt: Pollution of Lake Manzala

2nd prize: Alain Daoud, Lebanon

3rd prize: Assem Sultan, Lebanon
