The popular photography event is putting out a final call for entries for this year’s competition

Inaugurated in 2007, the Environmental Photographer of the Year awards are an annual celebration of the best images capturing the planet’s environmental and social issues. This year there are three specific themes being called for – the Built Environment; the Changing Climate; People, Nature and Economy.

The prizes for the 2016 competition are:

  • Environmental Photographer of the Year: £3000
  • Young Environmental Photographer of the Year (Under 25): £1000
  • Environmental Film of the Year: £500
  • Atkins Built Environment Award: Photographer in residence for 12-month opportunity capturing Atkins major projects
  • CIWEM Changing Climate Award: £500, plus showcase of portfolio in one issue of The Environment magazine
  • Forestry Commission England People, Nature and Economy Award: £1,000, plus showcase of portfolio in one of England’s Public Forests

Shortlisted works will be displayed at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London this June. This will be followed by a tour to forest venues nationally, supported by Forestry Commission England, beginning with Grizedale Forest in Cumbria.

The closing date for entries is Monday 18 April, so this is your final chance to get your images in for this year. For further information and to apply, visit: www.epoty.org.
