The Environmental Photographer of the Year competition is once again calling for entries from environmentally conscious photographers and filmmakers of all ages, nationalities and abilities. We are offering you the chance to use your photographic and filmmaking talents to promote an understanding of contemporary global environmental and social issues including climate change, sustainable development, biodiversity and human rights. If successful, your work will be featured by major global media and at high profile events around the world. The competition offers prize money of £6,000 and is FREE to enter.
This year there will be three specific prize themes to focus the entries – the Built Environment; the Changing Climate; and People, Nature and Economy.
The prizes for the 2016 competition are:
