Lights, camera, action!

If you are film/video maker, cinematographer, or photographer, consider submitting work to Climate Stories, an arts competition hosted by the Midwest Climate Summit. Entries should capture the lived or learned experiences of those affected by climate change around the world and urge a call-to-action.

Upload Requirements

Submissions can be either photos or videos under 10 minutes. Photoshop and editing may be used but the base work must be an image or video of a real place, object, or person. Collaborations are allowed if stated in submission. Animations should be submitted to the “visual arts” category, and performances to the “performing arts” category. All uploads should be either a MOV, PDF, PNG, or JPEG file. 


  • First Place: $1,500
  • Second Place: $1,000
  • Third Place: $750
