Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Art Partner has launched a contest called CreateCOP25, asking creatives—ranging from artists to performers of all mediums between the ages of 14 and 30—to make work surrounding the environment and our current climate crisis. With an application closing November 8, CreateCOP25 urges governments to commit to a net-zero carbon emission by 2050 and engages the creative community in the call for climate action.
Following a series of global climate protests and recent commitments from fashion brands to become carbon-neutral, the competition is part of Art Partner’s sustainability initiative, Earth Partner, which has been working to create practical and creative approaches to climate action for the past two years.
The winners will be selected by a panel of photography, fashion, and art world patrons, including designer Gabriela Hearst, photographer Harley Weir, designer and entrepreneur Francisco Costa, the founder of Eco-Age, Livia Firth, model and activist Wilson Oryema, agent Giovanni Testino, and Vogue Italia’s creative director, Ferdinando Verderi.
Six of the most memorable projects will be publicized in advance of the upcoming COP25 conference, with one winner receiving a $10,000 prize. All five runner ups will be given $2,000 each to be used as funding for future projects in response to climate change.
