InnoEnergy 2018 Photo contest

We were delighted to announce the launch of our very first InnoEnergy photography contest during The Business Booster 2018.

The importance and impact of renewable energy can be expressed not only through technical innovation but also through images that reflect and encourage a productive relationship between human ingenuity and the natural world.

In an age of technological advancement, we still seek to express our emotions, our friendships and our experiences through photographs. Using the art inherent in them, their popularity and accessibility to almost everyone, we hope with this competition to engage citizens to think, feel and act on imperative energy questions, both in action at the societal level and as individuals.

Citizen awareness and participation in the integration of sustainable energy into our daily lives is imperative. A photograph, be it raising awareness or celebrating innovation, can help move us towards our united goal: the future vision of a hi-tech, sustainable and beautiful planet that offers a decent quality of life to everyone.
