If you have been telling the exciting story of adaptation to climate change, here is your chance to win an award, and rub shoulders with the movers and shakers in this field.
Regional Climate Change Adaptation Knowledge Platform for Asia (AKP), the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN), the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Third Pole Project are organizing a competition for the best media reports on Adaptation to Climate Change.
The winners will be invited to the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum 2011, which will be held in Bangkok on 27-28 October 2011. The reports can be in any medium, be it print, web, video or audio. They can be in any language, but non-English entries should be accompanied by a written summary in English.
The competition is open to all journalists in the Asia-Pacific region. The entries should have been published or broadcast between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011.
The deadline for submitting entries is 23:59:59 GMT on 15 September 2011. Shortlisted entries will be featured on http://www.asiapacificadapt.net/adaptationforum2011 and http://www.thethirdpole.net from 20-30 September and every visitor to the Third Pole Project website will have an opportunity to vote for his or her favourite report.
The votes will be taken into account while choosing the winning entries. The winning journalists will be invited to cover the Adaptation Forum 2011, which will focus on the theme ‘Mainstreaming Adaptation into Development: Adaptation in Action’.
The cost of their travel and stay will be borne by the Adaptation Forum 2011 organizers. The initial announcement of the Adaptation Forum 2011, including the provisional agenda, is attached.
