Docudays UA invites everyone to participate in an Instagram-competition dedicated to the ecological problems in Ukraine.


This idea is inspired by #EveryDayClimateChange photo project. We’re unveiling the secrets little by little: an exhibition of the best photos will take place at Docudaus UA 2017.


#EveryDayClimateChange is an Instagram feed where more than 40 photographers from 5 continents tell about the consequences of global warming all over the world. The project combines photography, ecoactivism and social networks to document the consequences of climate change on our planet, spread the information about these processes and encourage people to unite in fighting them. The photos demonstrate that climat change is an everyday reality for all of us, a reality that demands determined and united counter-action.


The competition organized by our festival aims to draw attention of the active citizens of Ukraine not only to the global problem of climate change, but to the more specific negative influences of human activity on the environment. To participate in the competition, publishing your works (photos with description text) that tell about the harmful influence of human activity on environment in Ukraine (reasons and consequences of the pollution) and/or show the ways of solving ecological problems.


Who can apply


Every willing Instagram user.


How to participate


Publishing a photo that corresponds to the competition theme on Instagram with hashtags #eсooko and #DocudaysUA, detailed text that explains, how the photo reflects one or another ecological problem in Ukraine.


Attention! Using the correct hashtags is essential for participation in the competition. If the hashtag is incorrect or absent, the selection team won’t see your photo.


It is also important that the photo is described exhaustively, because the works will be rated by their contents. Artistic value of the photo will be taken to the account with the text. You can upload unlimited number of photos for competition.


The deadline is February 28th 2017, 23:59 by Eastern European time.


Photos uploaded later will not be considered.




The selection committee will choose the best works to be printed for the exhibition at Docudays UA 2017. Pleasant surprises from the festival team will be waiting for authors of the best photos. The winner will be announced at the closing ceremony, and will receive a special prize from the competition partners.


The competition is organized with the support of the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s Office in Ukraine. The project is supported by NGO “Ukrainian youth climate association”
