Finalists for the Visions of Climate Heritage competition showing landscape photography, detailed sketches and evocative paintings have been revealed.

Capturing scenes of environmental degradation, pollution, changing landscapes and extreme weather, the finalists across the categories including Best Photograph, Best Mobile Photograph, Best Artwork, and the Young Creative Awards, all showcasing the wide-reaching impacts of and solutions to climate change in Scotland.

Visions of Climate Heritage, which was launched to coincide with COP26, has been developed by HES in partnership with the Heritage Trust Network and the Scottish Council on Archives in response to the climate emergency.

As part of the competition HES has created a crowdsourced online exhibition of photography and artwork, to help tell Scotland’s climate – past, present and future – with the aim to harness the power of Scotland’s historic environment and cultural heritage to inspire climate action.

The exhibitions are split into the competition’s three themes: ‘The past was a different Place’; ‘This is an Emergency’; or ‘A Greener Future’ and can all be viewed on the HES website.

Alison Turnbull, Director of External Relations and Partnership at HES, said  “I’d like to extend my congratulations to all of the finalists of Visions of Climate Heritage, our first-ever crowdsourcing competition.

!We had a range of fantastic submissions and are delighted that so many people took the opportunity to help us tell Scotland’s climate story in unique ways.

“Through our Visions of Climate Heritage competition and exhibition, we can see the power that our history and heritage have to unlock creativity and get us thinking about climate change issues in a different way.

!The images that form this exhibition will also become an important resource for telling our continuing climate story, helping to inspire the positive and sustainable change required on our journey to net-zero.”

The judging for Visions of Climate Heritage will take place in the New Year and the winners will be announced in January 2022.
