Capturing the glory of wind power

Visit website


Wind energy is much more than just technology. It captures the imagination, inspires and fascinates.

This was clearly demonstrated in the 1,000 photographs submitted from 67 countries to this year’s Global Wind Day photo competition, run by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

Canadian photographer Joan Sullivan claimed the top prize of a €1,000 ($1,320) Amazon voucher for her shot, below, of a turbine tower under construction at Quebec’s Mont Louis wind farm. She and the five regional winners were selected by an expert jury that included Recharge art director Simon Bogle.
