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.
