CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year 2018

Competition summary:

The Environmental Photographer of the Year 2018 is now open for entries. It is open to all professional and amateur, national and international photographers of all ages, and exhibits the very best in international environmental photography.

The competition aims to inspire a global audience to think differently about contemporary social and environmental issues; including pollution, plastic, sustainable development and poverty.

In over a decade, the Environmental Photographer of the Year has narrated the growing impact of human activity on the natural environment, and has attracted over 50,000 entries since it began.

The competition reflects CIWEM’s breadth of experience across the water and environmental spectrum. Judges are in search of images which can show the intimate link between environmental and social issues, and that will make the observer question their own behaviour towards the planet.

Winners have the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes, including £2000 pounds in cash, and have the chance for their photographs to be showcased around the world.

The competition closes on 31st July 2018.
