Creative Climate Awards

An annual global competition and festival, the awards showcase artists creating climate-inspired work that raises public awareness and sparks action. 


Our 2021 CCA bring together New York City artists and international filmmakers to inspire us to see connections between our health and the climate crisis. 

We are hosting twenty NYC-based fellows, who represent the diversity of creative and health expertise in our City. Our international call for films resulted in over 500 submissions and 11 selected films coming from ten different countries.

Together, these creatives are sharing stories from communities far and wide on how closely our health and wellbeing are connected to the health and wellbeing of our planet.  



Our Creative Climate Awards celebrate artists and culture creators who engage, educate, and incite action with their creativity. 

Each year, we have an open call for participants in a month long exhibit in NYC. If selected, you will be invited to participate in special events, have your work seen by our mentors, and compete for $2000 in prize money.
