Celebrate the 10th JPI Oceans' Anniversary with your creativity!

Art and photography are vital to close the emotional gap between society and our marine environment. With the Art & Photo Awards JPI Oceans wishes to bolster the role of both media in tackling the challenge of communicating about the environment covering most of our planet. Therefore we welcome entries addressing the three interconnected priority areas of JPI Oceans: Ocean Health, Ocean Productivity, and Ocean Stewardship & Governance.

The competition is organized in two categories: the open competition and the JPI Oceans projects competition. For each category a top three will be selected with the winner being awarded a prize of - €1000. The two runner-ups will each be awarded a prize of €500. The competition is open to all forms of photography and art. Participants can utilise any form of visual art or photography (e.g. microscopic) and other tools (such as Photoshop or paint and brush) to enhance their image in order to successfully convey their views. The awarded photos will receive a prominent place in the JPI Oceans office, will be communicated through all JPI Oceans communication media and used at external events.

Our All-Atlantic Youth Ambassador for Belgium Eloïse Savineau is part of the jury!
