The Italian Sustainability Photo Award (ISPA) is a photographic competition created in 2019 with a view to raising public awareness in Italy with regards to sustainability: specifically, environmental, social and governance sustainability. Guided by ESG – Environmental, Social, Governance – standards, the inspiration for ISPA came from the meeting of two different bodies: Parallelozero, agency and ISPA Organizer, and PIMCO, leader in investment management and ISPA Main Sponsor.


Parallelozero is an agency that has been producing and telling great stories for more than 10 years. Thanks to its team of professionals – photographers, journalists, videomakers, directors, graphic artists, art directors

and strategists – every day it transforms creative ideas into visual content and multimedial narrative product. This is both for traditional magazine publishing and corporate communication.
