Short description

The “Art on Climate” International Illustration Competition is now inviting talented illustrators to craft artworks that address the theme of “Climate Change”.

The competition seeks to act as a platform for the exchange of innovative ideas and practical solutions to address climate change, and to inspire the public to proactively make a change in their daily life in response to the global challenge. Initially launched in Spain in 2019, Art on Climate expanded its reach to the Asia-Pacific region in 2021 and the global world in 2022. The 2023 campaign has drawn tremendous participation, with over 1,600 illustrators from more than 100 locations submitting over 2,800 remarkable artworks. This year, the competition continues its footprints in the Asia-Pacific region, inviting established illustrators and aspiring students to demonstrate their skills and creativity, with the goal to amplify global awareness and inspire meaningful actions on climate change. The theme for 2024 is Climate Change. Participants should use one or more of the statements below as a starting point for their work:

1.Building resilient communities for climate change
As the impacts of climate change intensify, it is crucial to empower communities to adapt and withstand the associated risks. Building resilient communities not only prepares us for the immediate impacts of climate change but also equips us to navigate the uncertainty ahead.

2.Defining planetary boundaries
It is crucial to define the environmental limits within which humanity must operate to ensure the continued stability and health of our planet. By identifying and respecting these boundaries, we can take responsible actions to prevent irreversible damage to ecosystems and the climate.

3.Fostering inclusive capitalism
It seeks to create a just and sustainable society by placing equal emphasis on both financial returns and social impact. This approach encourages businesses and investors to prioritise long-term value creation, environmental sustainability, and social responsibility. By embracing inclusive capitalism, we can foster a more inclusive and equal future.

4.Embracing innovate solutions with technology
Technological innovation plays a pivotal role in driving sustainability and addressing the urgent challenges posed by climate change. With the help of advanced technology, we can inspire others to proactively make a change in our daily life practices and shape a better future.

5.Combating climate change with collective action
Collective action against climate change requires individuals, communities, businesses, governments, and international organisations to unite and work towards a common goal. By changing our lifestyle, sharing knowledge and resources, and embracing sustainable practices, we can drive transformative changes to mitigate climate change and create a sustainable future.

Recognising the urgency of the global challenge of climate change, it is everyone's contribution to make a change. Big change starts with a small step. No matter where you are living in, you can incorporate a more sustainable practice in your daily life, and promote the awareness of climate change to the world. Empowered by today’s technology, your aspirations and efforts to tackle climate change can be shared across the world beyond geographic barriers, inspiring others to act together for the future of our climate.
