This is a call for applicants to tackle the largest challenge of our age. The Climate Crisis is a terrifying and nebulous topic so this is a call to action to bring this urgent topic to the forefront of emerging photography. The Climate Crisis is an issue that affects us all, yet can be a difficult subject to pursue in a creative capacity. It is even more problematic given that we are all complicit in the system that gives rise to the problem. A system from which it is impossible to extricate ourselves. Regardless of ones own wishes simply going about ones day in the UK (for example) means 20-30 kgs of green house gases are released per person on our behalf. It is easy to choose to avoid or ignore the issue, as it is such a complicated and challenging topic to explore in creative work. The Agenda.Earth grant aims to support those that want to engage with the most urgent issue of our age. We hope that this platform and the associated grant will provide a home for creatives that have been, and continue to grapple with this issue.

​ We are looking for an individual reading and response to the title - 'Creation in Crisis' The December grant is a single one off grant of £5000 to support emerging photographers, engage with the Climate Crisis and decarbonise their process. It is required that the Climate Crisis is an explicit focus of the project and that the project proposal is a direct response to the title 'Creation in Crisis.' The proposal must also outline the steps that will be taken to decarbonise the production of the project and associated travel plans.

The Grant is GBP (or equivalent) £5000 to enable the winning photographer to produce their work as envisioned in their project proposal.
