Today’s Windpower Wednesday Photo of the Day, by Marios Zangas of Greece, was the winner in last year’s Global Wind Day photo competition.
Entries for this year’s competition close May 20.
About this shot:
“A unique, first-of-its-kind 73.2 MW wind farm on a small and uninhabited Greek island called Agios Georgios. Agios Georgios is the only onshore wind farm with offshore characteristics to be ever built across the globe. 25 nautical miles of submarine cables were needed in order to connect the wind park to Athens’ electricity grid. In the middle of the vast Aegean Sea, Agios Georgios wind farm produces clean energy for the increasingly demanding Attica region.”
The goal of the contest is to “draw the attention of the public and policymakers to wind energy and the power it holds to alleviate many social, economic and environmental challenges.”
Plus, the winner gets £1,000 plus bragging rights. And the winning photographs will be displayed at the WindEurope Summer Reception in Brussels and across both WindEurope and GWEC’s channels.
Creativity, content, composition and technique as well as a compelling story behind your photograph are the key criteria for the judges.
Awards in three categories
