The jury of the first edition of IPAM’s photo contest Amazoniar – Elza Lima, Felipe Russo, José Sabino and Martha Fellows – selected the winners of the four categories: Earth Sciences, Cultural Heritage, Conservation and Biodiversity. They chose 17 photographs among 160 entries. Aiming to encourage the recording of realities in the Amazon region, as well as cultural and artistic production in the region, the contest was part of Amazoniar, an initiative by IPAM (Amazon Enviromental Research Institute) to promote a global dialogue on the Amazon forest and how it influences the relations between Brazil and the world.

The winners will have their photos exhibited, in digital format or through projection, during the Conference of the Parties (COP 26) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, in Glasgow, Scotland, and at the Museu do Amanhã (Museum of Tomorrow), in Rio de Janeiro.

In Glasgow, people will be able to appreciate the photographs on November 4th, at a temporary exhibition IPAM will organise at Kelvingrove Park (6 Teachers’ Square, Glasgow G3 6BY – United Kingdom), from 4 pm to 8 pm (GMT). Anyone participating in COP26 can visit the exhibition until November 12th at the Brazil Climate Action Hub, a space created by several Brazilian civil society organizations (including IPAM) in the Pavilion where the Conference takes place. In Rio de Janeiro, the photographs will be next to the exhibition “Fruturos – Tempos Amazônicos”, which is scheduled to start on December 17th and will be opened for six months.

“The exhibition sees photography as a powerful gesture capable of going beyond itself and its borders”, said Lucas Ramos, coordinator of Amazoniar. “Here we find the gaze of various image producers with origins as plural as the forest’s diversity: from enchanted visitors to secular residents. Its natural resources, its populations, its efforts for conservation, and its biodiversity were registered by an intimate perspective of what the Amazon forest represents and what message they want the world to see.”

Congratulations to the winners:
