DigitalArt4Climate Art Competition will identify up to 25 artworks which will be exclusively showcased at the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow, UK on the 11th of November 2021.
- The DigitalArt4Climate COP26 collection artwork will be minted as NFT and included in different forms of resource mobilization (sponsorship packages, auctions, partnerships with galleries, NFT marketplace) for climate action empowerment flagship initiatives of the DigitalArt4Climate organizers (COP26 ACE pavilion, World Environment Situation Room youth engagement programme, DigitalArt4Climate / Action for Climate Empowerment marketplace development).
- The selected Artworks which enter the public voting of the Art Competition and the COP26 collection will automatically enter the auction (the details to be confirmed) and will receive a share of 15 % of the net revenues or gross proceeds from the auction (NFT sales) on the primary market. These 15% from the sale of NFTs must be claimed by the artists within 14 (fourteen) days from the time the notification of the results of the auction was sent. Artists must provide sufficient information and/or tax forms to receive the monetary award.
- DigitalArt4Climate will promote the winning Artists’ names. Any remaining proceeds will benefit youth climate action projects as well as global technical and institutional Action for Climate Empowerment support infrastructure development, including World Environment Situation Room Youth engagement programme. Creative direction may be provided to the Artist for final release on the website and the DigitalArt4Climate public voting.
- Artists whose artwork will be shortlisted for the Art Competition by the curators, but who do not make it into the initial DigitalArt4Climate COP26 collection, will nevertheless have the opportunity to have prime-access to the DigitalArt4Climate NFT marketplace platform during its first months live.
The DigitalArt4Climate Art Competition, organized by IAAI GloCha in collaboration with the UN-Habitat youth programme wants to inspire and promote climate action through the power of culture and technology and empower the uptake of digital innovation by the creative community in an accessible and meaningful way.
