The Fly on the Wall website server is down, through no fault of my own unfortunately, so while we wait on Wix, here are the submission details of competition Planet in Peril:
Competition ‘Planet in Peril’ urges artists and creatives to engage in climate change research and respond to it, presenting statistics and the stark realities in a new form.
“Planet in Peril”: an anthology for our time.
“There has never been a more critical moment in this planet’s history. Ecosystems and species stand upon the precipice of extinction and await human action. Spurred by the urgency of the situation, Fly on the Wall Press has teamed up with WWF, The Climate Coalition, Dr Michelle Cain (Oxford University), former Derbyshire Poet Laureate, Helen Mort, and wildlife photographer, Emily Gellard, to create an anthology for our future.
“Planet in Peril” will combine beautiful photography of endangered species and delicate ecosystems, with poetry designed to increase public awareness of the complex issues surrounding climate change. A competition for poetry and photography submissions is now open, with cash prizes and publication of the grabs. Photography and poetry alike will reflect the damage already done to our planet and the urgency of the call to action, while the stark realities will be factually laid out with the support of Dr Cain. Fly on the Wall Press will welcome poetry submissions which explore personal connections to the planet and reflections on the damage inflicted on it by humanity. Submissions close April 28th.”
