“Avec les ans, mon plaisir à regarder le monde ne s’est pas émoussé. Il se renouvelle même sans cesse au contact d’une planète en pleine transformation et de ses habitants – toujours différents, toujours étonnants.”
("Time has not changed the pleasure I experience when I look at the world. It is constantly renewed by a changing planet and its inhabitants - always different, always surprising.'') Yann Arthus Bertrand, French photographer, journalist, reporter, environmentalist and patron of this 5th edition
Each year, the Fondation Alliance Française organises an international photography competition within the worldwide network of the Alliances Françaises. On the occasion of the 21st Conference on Climate Change that France will host from November 30 to December 11, 2015, in Paris the Fondation Alliance Française presents the 5th edition of its international photo competition, whose theme is "Climate state of emergency".
Candidates were invited to submit two works each illustrating the real or perceived evolution of their country’s climate issues, the resulting effects on people’s life, and the solutions that are taken or envisaged to fight against the negative effects.
