“Planet Heat”: photography to capture and improve the world

Get to know more about the winners of our contest and their pictures. “Planet Heat” has been organised to celebrate World Photography Day

Photography allows us to capture our world, to make a precise painting of the reality we are surrounded by. But it can also become a tool to make us be aware of the problems that our planet is facing. “Planet Heat” wants to depict our planet, that lately has been experiencing heat, fires… and that is severely affected by the climate crisis. On the 19th of August, World Photography Day is held. To celebrate it, from Balkan Hotspot we organized this photography contest.
