Historic Environment Scotland (HES) is inviting members of the public to submit pictures or artwork showing the impact of climate change on Scotland.

Historic Environment Scotland (HES) has launched a contest, Visions of Climate Heritage, ahead of next month’s COP26 Summit.

The prizes, worth £750, for 12-17-year olds come in the Best Picture, Best Mobile Picture, Best Artwork and Young Creative Awards categories.

All entries will be judged by virtue of their capacity to relate a story, and their visual interest, impact [and] relevance for the historic environment and climate change in Scotland.

The contributions should match one of the three themes in any of these: the past was another place; such emergency or a greener future.

Visions of Climate Heritage was developed by the HES in partnership with the Heritage Trust Network and the Scottish Council on Archives in response to climate sepsis, launching in preparation for the COP26 Summit in November.
