The "Italian Sustainability Photo Award" is the photographic competition organized by PIMCO with the aim of raising awareness of sustainability in Italy (with three special focuses on the environment, society and governance). The prizes will be awarded to the photographs that succeed in telling, with more effectiveness and quality, the progress of the Sustainable Development Objectives at the national level. The subject of the shots should be situations and aspects related to everyday life in its many facets.

A prestigious jury of international photographers, photo editors and journalists will award the prizes for Best Single Photo and Best Photographic History.

In addition, the best proposal in terms of photographic project will be selected and will receive a contribution of 10,000 euros.

The initiative is organized under the auspicies of the Italian Network of the Global Compact, which will take part in the final award ceremony.

Deadline for submission is 28 February 2020.



SUSTAINABILITY IN IMAGES - This is more than just a slogan: it is the values on which the very idea of the competition is based and which are communicated through the narrative power of photography. Sustainability concerns all of us, our daily life and our daily behaviour. The "Italian Sustainability Photo Award" was created for this purpose: to present conscious choices, innovative ideas and courageous solutions.

The competition, therefore, aims to reward and enhance Italian ambitious stories of environmental, social and sustainable governance describing a country that looks to the future and aims for growth. Photographers from all over the world are invited to respond to the challenge: to produce powerful and visionary images that depict and illustrate hope, the future, rights and duties, and progress towards a more sustainable existence.
