Our Creative Climate Awards are an annual series of events

showcasing climate-inspired works and community action.

CREATIVE CLIMATE AWARDS 

APPLY

Use your creativity.  Inspire climate action. 

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 judges, and compete for $2000 in prize money.
