The Business Booster Photo Contest

Welcome to the TBB Photo Contest page!

We believe that the impact of energy can be expressed not only through new technologies, but by images that capture the attention and touch the hearts of people. Since 2018, we have been running an annual EIT InnoEnergy photo contest. World renowned photographers are invited to provide images related to sustainable energy. The top photographs are selected by a panel of experts and displayed and awarded at The Business Booster event.

Information for event delegates

It is a challenge to communicate an abstract topic such as energy; but citizen awareness and participation in sustainable energy can move us towards our goals of a sustainable planet and quality of life. Using the art in photographs we can engage citizens to think, feel and act regarding the imperative energy questions — both in mass action at the societal level and individual action.

The Business Booster is your chance to witness some of the world’s most brilliant sustainable energy photography. After all, energy affects all of us, and more of us will understand this, and we hope, get excited by the prospects with these visual communications.
