Ecologic Institute's 25th Anniversary Photo Contest

Forward looking – looking forward

29 August 2020
Berlin, Germany

On the occasion of our 25th anniversary, Ecologic Institute organised a photo contest among colleagues and friends.

As we are curious what the future will bring, and what visions are out there for a sustainable world, we chose the topic: Forward looking – Looking forward.

In two different categories, juniors (under 18 years) and adults were encouraged to pick up their cameras, explore their surroundings and find inspiring, forward-looking motives in their environment.

All in all, we received 54 contributions: 40 for the regular contest, and 14 for the junior contest. The winners were determined by a vote taken by Ecologic Institute staff.

And the winners of the Ecologic Institute 25th Anniversary Photo Contest are…

1st Place: Anton Tarabichi (12 years)

2nd Place: Anna Duwe (10 years)

3rd Place: Ilay Bausch (12 years)

In addition, five of the winning submissions will be printed on postcards (1st place junior contest, 1st place and selected 2nd places of the adult contest).

Congratulations to all winners!

We look forward to the next 25 years of forward-looking science and policy for a sustainable world.
