ActForEaling’s Photography Competition Celebration and Launch Event

Jan 26, 2022 | Uncategorized

On Saturday 22nd January, ActForEaling, Ealing’s newest community climate action hub, hosted an in-person celebration of their inaugural 2021 photography competition at OPEN Ealing’s gallery space in Dickens Yard, Ealing Broadway.

ActForEaling is a community-led central hub for anyone interested in climate action in Ealing.  Using digital platforms, ActFroEaling promote and celebrate climate action that takes place in the London Borough of Ealing to encourage more residents to get involved in climate action taking place on their doorstep. You can find out more about ActForEaling by visiting their website here, or viewing them on EHCVS’ own ‘Our Projects’ page.

The event was well attended and saw the photography competition winners (listed below), ActForEaling’s local partners, local councillors, and Ealing Central and Acton MP Rupa Huq come together to celebrate the winning entries, learn more about ActForEaling and its local partners, and discuss areas of collaboration on future work.

After some time for guests to settle and examine the information and photographs on display, ActForEaling steering group member, Trevor Sharman gave a presentation on ActForEaling and the work the group have been carrying out. Trevor went on to call on the guests to support ActForEaling in the future by connecting via their online platforms and keep on top of future AFE plans.

Then, Sarah Hadland, treasurer of AFE partner The Selborne Society, presented the winners with their certificates and recounted the panel of judges’ comments as to why they won. Following this, she went on to announce the prize the winners had won, a guided tour around conservation site Perivale Wood to take some photographs. You can see details of the prize here.

The winners and their entries are as follows:

Youth Class Winner

Zacahary Avedian- ‘Learning about nature starts early’

Judges’ Special Mention

Leo Ghislanzoni- ‘Helping flowers pollinate’

Adult Class Winner

Maya Jagger- ‘Taking ownership of the space’

First Runner-Up

Roly West- ‘Enterprising young lady’

Second Runner-Up

Gayle Labib- ‘Love your streets to love our insects’

To wrap up, ActForEaling members Natalie and Enid, along with ActForEaling coordinator Daniel, recounted their experiences of attending COP26 in Glasgow in November. They relayed back to the group on their individual highlights of attending the conference, what they learned from being at the conference and how the experience has inspired them to drive forward with climate action in Ealing from the perspective of different generations.
