Global Wind Day is a worldwide event celebrating the success of wind energy. Organised by WindEurope and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Global Wind Day – to be held on 15 June – also gives members of the public the chance to participate in the wind energy success story via the annual photo competition.
The Global Wind Day photo competition offers major cash prizes to participants. The theme of the competition is WindVision, and aims to draw the attention of the public and policymakers to the power wind energy holds to alleviate many social, economic and environmental challenges. “Wind power generates lots of clean energy, but it also generates some amazing images,” says Steve Sawyer, secretary general of GWEC.
“The powerful sweep and majesty of the turbines themselves, as well as the awesome panoramas from atop a nacelle, provides both inspiration and determination to fight for a clean energy future.”
