“We need to focus on protecting our environment now more than ever,” urged the latest climate reports.
So, we put artists to the task!
In our latest call for entries, we asked artists to illuminate this important issue and share artworks that captured their existing natural landscape or addressed the climate and environment in some way.
And your entries did not disappoint! We received hundreds of thought-provoking pieces that left us both in awe of the beautiful world we live in and even more inspired to protect it.
