Smog is like an intangible chain twined over Beijing. It is hard to unlock but not impossible, nevertheless.

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is delighted to announce the winners of its fifth annual International Student Photography Contest. The topic was Climate Change. We asked for photos that show examples of climate change OR examples of combating or adapting to climate change.

First prize goes to Bohua Duan, of Beijing No.4 High School International Campus in China, whose photo,"Chain," of Beijing smog is featured here.

Duan writes: "Smog has remained as a major threat to the residents in Beijing for almost five years. In 2013, smog became the center of public debate. However, the issue continued to exist. The picture was taken in December 29, 2017 in my school. The air is still pungent and noxious; the sky is still monotonous and depressive. Smog is like an intangible chain twined over Beijing. It is hard to unlock but not impossible, nevertheless. The key to open it must be somewhere yet nobody knows. It seemed formidable and perpetual so we must strive hard to combat smog."

Second prize goes to Jiangfeng Chu of North Allegheny Intermediate High School, Pennsylvania, USA, whose photo, "High Water," shows the effects of climate change on Lake Mead.

Honorable mention goes to Yat Chun Wong of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China, whose photo, "Vertical Garden," shows a vertical garden in Malaysia that "contributes to the superb air quality in the region."
