Colour


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.

Applications for the 2015 award are now open - enter here.

Appliations for this years competition close on 7th April 2015. The announcement of the outstanding environmental, social and natural photographs selected for exhibition will be made in April 2015. The works will be displayed at the Royal Geographical Society in London in June 2015, followed by a tour to forest venues nationally, supported by Forestry Commission England.

 
 


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 saw the introduction of the Atkins Cityscape Prize of £1,000, and the competition became free to enter.

Prizes for the 2015 competition include:


Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year of £5000

Atkins CIWEM Young Environmental Photographer of the Year (Under 18) of £1000

Atkins CIWEM Environmental Film of the Year of £1000

Atkins Cityscape Prize of £1000

Forestry Commission England Exhibition Award: one photographer will be invited to exhibit a solo show at one of England's public forests

Entries will be judged from the open submission by the distinguished panel of judges:

Dr David Haley-Senior Research Fellow, Director - Ecology In Practice, Route Leader MA Art as Environment, Manchester Metropolitan University

Brigitte Lardinois-Deputy Director of the Photography and the Archive Research Centre at University of the Arts London

Tim Parkin-Landscape photographer and Editor of On Landscape

Hayley Skipper-Curator of Arts Development, Forestry Commission England

Stephen Vaughan-Photographer and Senior Lecturer, Bath Spa University and Plymouth University

The panel will select entries on impact, composition, originality, creativity and technical ability. They are looking in particular for pictures that show the dynamic link between environmental and social issues in a way that makes us think differently about the world around us. Previous entries have examined issues such as innovation, sustainable development, biodiversity, poverty, climate change, human rights, culture, natural disasters and population growth.
