The UK Government is inviting people to tell their climate change stories through photographs.

DECC has launched a new competition which aims to generate a “powerful collection” of images that show the different ways climate change touch our day-to-day lives.

Participants are encouraged to link the image to one or more of the following questions:

What do you most want to protect from the impacts of climate change?
What feeling does climate change provoke?
What can tackling climate change lead to?

Once the subject is chosen, the photograph must be uploaded to Instagram or Twitter using #BackClimateChange with a short caption that explains how the image links to climate change.

DECC said the winning entry will be the image that “challenges us to re-imagine climate change in the most original and engaging way”.

First prize is a workshop with Getty Images in London and a boat trip to photograph an offshore wind farm.

Five runners-up will win a pair of tickets to the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in London and a Getty ‘Year in Focus’ book.
