“Art on Climate” International Illustration Competition

Art on climate poster competition

Organised by Fingertips Company Limited and sponsored by Allianz Global Investors (AllianzGI), “Art on Climate” is a worldwide illustration competition designed to bring greater awareness of effective approaches for combating
climate change.
Initially launched in Spain in 2019, the Art on Climate competition expanded its reach to the Asia-Pacific region in 2021 and the global world in 2022. The 2023 campaign has drawn tremendous participation, with over 1,600
illustrators from more than 100 locations submitting over 2,800 remarkable artworks. This year, the competition continues its footprints in the Asia-Pacific region, inviting established illustrators and aspiring students to demonstrate
their skills and creativity, with the goal to amplify global awareness and inspire meaningful actions on climate change.

As signatories of the UN PRI since 2007, we seek investments that align with our sustainability principles and address global challenges.

Echoing with the 2024 competition’s objectives, we invite everyone to join us to shape a better future.
Theme of the Competition: Climate Change Participants are invited to submit original works on the theme of “climate
change”. Participants should draw inspiration from one or more of the following topics as a starting point of their artworks:


1. Building resilient communities for climate change As the impacts of climate change intensify, it is crucial to empower
communities to adapt and withstand the associated risks. Building resilient communities not only prepares us for the immediate impacts of climate change but also equips us to navigate the uncertainty ahead.
2. Defining planetary boundaries
It is crucial to define the environmental limits within which humanity must operate to ensure the continued stability and health of our planet. By identifying and respecting these boundaries, we can take responsible actions to prevent irreversible damage to ecosystems and the climate.
3. Fostering inclusive capitalism
It seeks to create a just and sustainable society by placing equal emphasis on both financial returns and social impact. This approach encourages businesses and investors to prioritise long-term value creation, environmental sustainability, and social responsibility. By embracing inclusive capitalism, we can foster a more inclusive and equal future.
4. Embracing innovate solutions with technology Technological innovation plays a pivotal role in driving sustainability and addressing the urgent challenges posed by climate change. With the help of advanced technology, we can inspire others to proactively make a change in our daily life practices and shape a better future.
5. Combating climate change with collective action Collective action against climate change requires individuals, communities, businesses, governments, and international organisations to unite and work towards a common goal. By changing our lifestyle, sharing knowledge and resources, and embracing sustainable practices, we can drive transformative changes to mitigate climate change and create a sustainable future.
