The Dawn Project 2022 Competition: Recycle, Renew and Rebirth.

Competition Framework

The Dawn Project 2022 Competition: Recycle, Renew and Rebirth.

The Dawn Project is dedicated to addressing the consequences of climate change, plastic pollution and ecosystem/biodiversity degradation through artistic expression, in order to ensure a cleaner and healthier environment which will ultimately be beneficial to the well-being of all citizens, and by extension, the world at large.

The goals of the 2022 competition are twofold. The first goal gives youth a voice about how they view the environmental issues in the world in which they live, whether from a local or global perspective. The second goal gives youth, through the creation of their work, the ability to raise awareness about the environmental issues important to them and move others to take action.
