THEME

We co-exist with the rest of the natural world, interconnected within the great web of life. The depletion of natural resources and rapid environmental degradation are the results of unsustainable consumption and production.

Let us aim to devise a new world by inspiring humans with the 'power of pictures' that celebrate the unique relationships in nature. Invoke a strong desire in their minds to build a beautiful and sustainable world.

That is why we have selected 'In Harmony with Nature' as the theme for the Greenstorm Global Photography Award 2022. There is a loftier purpose than just prestigious recognitions that gets you behind the lenses yet another time. Come on, pick up your cameras to raise a storm!
