The 2022 jurors are actors Ed Begley Jr. and Sam Heughan; filmmaker Eva Orner; chef and filmmaker Oliver English; Bloomberg senior executive editor John Fraher and Bloomberg Green executive editor Aaron Rutkoff; atmospheric scientist Deanna A. Hence; and Redford Center executive director Jill Tidman.

The submission period is open until March 25, 2022. More information on rules and eligibility is available at Bloomberg’s website.

“The Bloomberg Green brand is committed to illustrating important issues on climate change through original reporting, visual storytelling and brilliant design,” said Lauren Kiel, Bloomberg Green’s general manager, in a news release. “We’re excited to launch Green Docs and give creators an opportunity to tell important climate stories through their own lenses.”

“Bloomberg Green aims to be the definitive resource for reporting on climate change, and with Bloomberg Green Docs, we hope to showcase new and vital storytelling on climate change’s impact on the world,” Fraher added.
