Photography competition, Earth Photo, returns for the third year with entries open for one more week

There’s still one week left to enter Earth Photo!

Developed by Forestry England and the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), Earth Photo is an international competition that rewards photographs celebrating the natural world, its beauty, and its ever-growing fragility.

The judging panel is once again headed by award-winning photographer Marissa Roth, a member of the photojournalism team that won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the 1992 LA riots. The editor of Geographical is also on the judging panel.

In 2020, Earth Photo will focus on photographs or films describing People, Place, Nature and Changing Forests. Additionally, a new category, Climate Change, has been created. The selected pictures will be shown in the Earth Photo exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), London, and on a national tour to Forestry England forests: Dalby Forest, Grizedale Forest and Moors Valley. Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each of the five categories and to a short film entry. One image will be selected as the overall winner.
