Lausanne, Switzerland: Photogrammetry software company Pix4D has launched its first ever Climate Contest. People from around the world are invited to submit a project which uses mapping to investigate or mitigate the climate crisis for the chance to win up to a $3,000USD cash prize and access to Pix4D software.
From tracking melting glaciers in rural Kyrgyzstan, to counting the cost of storm damaged crops in Puerto Rico, to mapping chimpanzee nests in Tanzania, Pix4D software and #dronesforgood is already helping scientists and citizens prepare to meet the climate crisis. The Pix4D Climate Contest offers changemakers support to get their project off the ground.
- The Pix4D Climate Contest is now open and is accepting entries until December 13, 2019. Winners will be announced by email in January 2020.
- Climate change is a global problem, so entries are open worldwide. Any individual, group, business, school or organization can enter and projects don’t need to have started to be considered.
- The judging panel includes Pix4D GIS-experts, environmental activists and a representative from Swiss Youth for Climate.
- As well as a cash prize and access to Pix4D software, winners will receive personalised technical support and have their projects featured on pix4d.com.
