By Benjamin Flowers: This week, McNab Design Ltd. (MDL) and the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) teamed up to announce the “Speak Up” campaign art competition for CARIFORUM countries.
The competition is open to artists aged 3 years from all 16 CARIFORUM Member States: Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad, and Tobago.
The submissions must be original artwork in either English, Spanish, French, or Dutch, and must answer the questions “How has climate change affected me? What is my message to the world on Caribbean climate change?”
MDL and the CCCCC issued a joint statement today, noting that the contest is an activity for the project “Enhancing Climate Resilience in CARIFORUM Countries,” an initiative of the ACP Group of States funded by the European Union.
“For four winning artists, this is an opportunity to have their work and opinion appreciated by the entire Caribbean and EU community, alongside a cash prize of USD$300,” they said.
Those interested in participating can enter by submitting their artwork in either JPG, JPEG, TIF, PNG or PDF format at 240 Dots Per Inch (DPI) or higher to the website www.mcnabvisual.com/climate-change-cariforum by August 31, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
Submissions must be accompanied by a photo of the persons or group submitting the piece. Only entry per person or group is allowed.
