The #MakeMercuryHistory Photo Contest features three categories (mercury pollution, the environment, and the people working to phase out mercury), with photographers encouraged to send one picture per category and help open the eyes of a broad public that may have not yet realized the magnitude of the problem, showing that everybody can contribute to the reduction of mercury pollution.
A jury of communication and environmental experts from leading global organizations such as UNEP, the GEF, and the Global Mercury Partnership will decide on the most relevant photos in each category.
The results will be announced on Earth Day, April 22, 2023. There will be one winner for each of the three categories listed above and nine finalists. Awards and visibility will be offered for each winner.
Photos should be submitted filling the online form and uploading the file with the relevant information. Any individual can use the form three times (one per category) at: https://bit.ly/MCPhoto2022.
