Now open for entries, the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer
of the Year competition is an international showcase for the very
best in environmental photography and film. Honouring
amateurs and professionals of all ages, it provides an opportunity
for photographers to share images of environmental and social
issues with international audiences, and to enhance our
understanding of the causes, consequences and solutions to climate
change and social inequality.
Following a hugely successful first year partnership, Atkins, one
of the world's leading design, engineering and project management
consultancies, are once again sponsoring the competition, allowing
for two significant improvements this year. 2014 sees the
introduction of the Atkins Cityscape Prize of £1,000, and it is
hoped that the competition will be open to more photographers this
year, as it is now free to enter.
Prizes for the 2014 competition include:
Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year of
Atkins CIWEM Young Environmental Photographer of the Year
(Under 18) of £1000
Atkins CIWEM Environmental Film of the Year of
Atkins Cityscape Prize of £1000
