The Environmental Photographer of the Year 2011 competition is now open, and this year a new video category has been introduced to further raise awareness of environmental and social issues.
Organised by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) since 2007, the Environmental Photographer of the
Year is an international showcase for the very best in amateur and professional environmental photography, and is one of the fastest growing competitions in the world – receiving entries from 97 countries in 2010.
EPOTY is open to professionals and amateurs of any age from anywhere in the world, and encourages entries that are creative, resonant and original. The competition is completely free to enter and copyright is retained by the entrant at all times.
The 2011 competition categories are:
• Mott MacDonald’s Changing Climates
• The Natural World
• The Underwater World
• Quality of Life
• A View From the Western World
• Building Our Future (New for 2011)
• The Young Environmental Photographer of the Year (Under 16 & Under 21)
• Video (New for 2011)
Winners receive cash prizes and all winning entries are displayed in the touring Environmental Photographer of the Year exhibition.
The winning entries share a prize fund of £5,000. We also provide the opportunity to sell your images to the media for editorial use and to the public as part of a limited edition print run. This arrangement is done on a contractual basis which photographers may opt out of, but is designed to help raise additional revenue for all our entrants.
