Are you creative with your camera and have a passion for wind energy? Then you might be keen to enter EWEA’s 2013 photo competition for Global Wind Day, giving yourself the chance to win a €1,000 Amazon voucher!

Following the success of last year’s hugely popular Global Wind Day photo competition, this year we are launching a photo competition with a twist: we are looking for entrants to submit a photo accompanied by a short story about wind energy describing to us what wind energy means to you.

Do you have a story to tell about wind energy? Whether you simply think wind turbines are attractive, or you think wind energy is the future, or, you work in the sector and want to tell us your story, supplement a photo submission with a short text. Tell us of a time when wind energy inspired you or sparked your attention, we want to know!

Winners of the competition will receive Amazon vouchers varying in price up to a value of €1,000 as well as their photographs featured in renewable energy publication ‘Recharge’ and EWEA’s magazine, Wind Directions. In addition, the winning selection will be put on display in the European Parliament in Brussels in the run up to Global Wind Day (15 June) during the beginning of June, as well as our social media platforms and website.

Submissions are accepted from competitors worldwide so if you’re 18+ years of age, all photos are welcome. Text should be 300 words or less. Find out more and submit your entry on www.globalwindday.org.

So keep an eye out for a perfect wind energy moment to capture and get those submissions entered by 12 May 2013 at 20:00 GMT!
