I've judged many photo competitions and the level of work entered to this competition is fantastic; it was a tough day, not only in selecting winners from some excellent entries but also in such varied and emotional subject matters.

This excellent competition encourages all those with cameras (which is most of us these days, I suppose) to look at our environment with new eyes – to see the environmental impact of things around us, sometimes in the most surprising places. Our cameras can be turned from the narcissistic tool of the selfie into a weapon in the war on environmental destruction.
Stephen Fry, Judge 2017
It is a real honour to be a judge in the 10th Environmental Photographer of The Year competition. Capturing the beauty, as well as the destruction of the environment around us and recognising that some of our actions are having a detrimental affect on the natural environment is vital in instigating change. This competition offers an opportunity for professional and amateur photographers alike to really view their surroundings and raise awareness to help save the oceans, wildlife, and ultimately, our planet
