Opportunity: Just Imagine arts competition

13th January 2021

Can you reimagine a future where we put nature at the heart of our decisions?

WWF has launched a nationwide competition calling on creatives to produce artworks that reimagine a greener, thriving future – where nature is at the heart of our decisions. The initiative, titled ‘Just Imagine’, hopes to spark conversations about the solutions to the climate and nature crisis and drive positive change through art.

Now open for entries, the competition welcomes submissions across a variety of disciplines, including visual arts, illustration, fashion and textiles, poetry, creative writing, and other art forms. Entrants are encouraged to use their artistic explorations to capture how we can best live in harmony with our planet and what our rebuilt future could look like.

The competition follows the release of Sir David Attenborough’s new film, ‘A Life On Our Planet’, in which he reflects on the changes to the natural world during his lifetime and presents his hopeful vision for the future. WWF, who co-produced the film, is encouraging individuals, arts collectives and artist networks from across the UK to take inspiration from Attenborough’s powerful witness statement and respond to the competition brief with their own ‘reimagined’ future.

Entries will close at 5pm on Monday, 25 January 2021. A panel of judges – including award-winning graphic designer Greg Bunbury, painter poet Judy Ling Wong CBE and award-winning Anthropological Future Designer Stacie Woolsey – will then select 12 winners to feature in a virtual exhibition, hosted by WWF-UK.

The exhibition aims to inspire and influence local communities, while illustrating the power of the creative community in shaping new ways of thinking.
