BRUSSELS, February 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have launched a global photo competition - 'Discover the stories behind wind energy'.
Why? Because wind energy is more than a technology. It captures the imagination, inspires, fascinates and captivates. Many people have a wind energy story they can share through a photo and text.
Deadline for submissions is 5 May 2013. The first prize winner will receive a 1,000 Euro voucher. Second prizes of 250 Euros will be awarded by region. The winning photographs will be displayed in the European Parliament in Brussels in June. They will also be published in the renewable energy newspaper 'Recharge' and EWEA's magazine 'Wind Directions' [http://www.ewea.org/wd ].
Please find detailed information on the photo competition here [http://www.globalwindday.org/photo-competition-discover-the-power-of-wind-energy ].
Prize winners will be announced on Global Wind Day, the worldwide day 'to discover the power of wind energy' that occurs annually on 15 June with several hundred events, exhibitions, open wind farms and local activities organised in about 40 countries all around the globe, as well as online actions (find out more in the Global Wind Day 2012 report [http://www.globalwindday.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/GWD_report_2012.pdf ]).
