The Prize CLIM’ART ANDURAND –CRÉATION & CONSCIENCEis the first figurative art competition organised by the Andurand Endowment Fund for young artists across France.

The FDD Andurand aims to support and accompany young people in France in the educational, sporting and cultural fields, as well as taking action to preserve and protect our environment.

With a total prize fund of €30,000, the CLIM'ART-ANDURAND Prize is an event designed to promote responsible artistic creation in the fields of painting, sculpture, photography and digital art, with the aim of making a lasting impact on the theme of climate change and environmental protection in contemporary art. 

The CLIM'ART ANDURAND Prize is designed to showcase the different aspects of current creative work on environmental themes. It takes the form of a thematic trail, including a competition, an exhibition and a digital reverberation.

THEMATIC CREATIONÉMATIQUE

In a world where environmental issues are of ever-increasing concern, the works must echo the ambition of the CLIM'ART ANDURAND - CREATION & CONSCIENCE Prize to bring the theme of environmental conservation into the world of art.

The CLIM'ART ANDURAND Prize invites artists to come to the aid of the same nature and environment from which they have drawn their inspiration for centuries. We are inviting artists to come to the bedside of threatened nature to extract strong, powerful messages that express the current concerns of an entire generation.

At a time when the threat of climate change is nagging at our consciences on a daily basis, how can today's artists contribute to building a world that is more respectful of nature? How does their creativity inspire us to rethink our relationship with the world around us?

The Contest Themes:

      ⬢ Preserving our marine heritage : The ocean is a major concern in the climate crisis climatique avec de grands enjeux comme l’érosion des côtes et la pollution plastique.

      ⬢ Fighting fires : Fires are on the increase in recent years années, favorisés par les dérèglements climatiques et de la sécheresse accrue.

      ⬢ Drought control : Long considered an inexhaustible resource, manque d’eau et des épisodes récurrents de sécheresse exacerbent désormais les tensions
