CC Artist Award

$750, $500, $250

At Climate Correction 2019, we are highlighting the visuals that inspire change. We believe that meaningful art can connect us with our senses and that the response can prompt action within communities.

The 2019 theme is “Present Issues, Future Solutions”. Submit your piece highlighting community or technology-based solutions, real or imagined. All mediums are accepted, including ceramics, digital, metalwork, recycled materials, photography, and beyond. We encourage student artists to use underlying messages and include environmental, social, and economic concepts that may often be overlooked.
