Ecogesture Photo Novel Competition – 2nd edition

To mark World Oceans Day, The SeaCleaners association is launching the second edition of the international "ECOGESTURE PHOTO-REPORT" competition, a creative educational project.

For the first edition of the competition, we received dozens of inspiring and engaging entries from mainland France, overseas France and French high schools abroad!
This year, join us in showcasing your ideas for eco-actions and the fight against plastic pollution!


Pedagogical objectives

By using the medium of the photo novel to illustrate eco-actions against plastic pollution, students carry out an interdisciplinary project that enables them to work in a different way, acquiring cross-disciplinary skills including scriptwriting, acting and directing, photography, page layout and teamwork.

We provide teachers with a PHOTO ROMAN KIT containing all the information and tools they need to set up the project!

Why take part?

This project is an opportunity to bring students together around a creative project celebrating the Ocean and enabling them to reflect on the preservation of the Planet and their civic commitment.

The 10 winners will be selected by The SeaCleaners Jury on the basis of the relevance of the message, originality of the image and creativity, and will receive Ocean-related gifts. The results will be announced on June 8, 2024 by The SeaCleaners teams.

The SeaCleaners Education team is available to answer any questions you may have about your participation.
