What is Earth Photo?
Now, more than ever, photography has the power to draw attention to the challenges facing the natural world and our planet.
Earth Photo is a world leading international programme, established in 2018. The programme engages with still and moving image makers, across all genres. Earth Photo addresses prescient issues affecting our planet, aiming to stimulate conversations about our environment and the impact of climate change.
In partnership with Forestry England, Parker Harris and the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), Earth Photo organises exhibitions, awards and events that celebrate photography and moving images.
Earth Photo tells compelling stories about our planet, its inhabitants, its beauty, fragility, and resilience.
A selection of the shortlisted images from 2023 entries will be on display at five of our forests between summer 2023 and spring 2024.
Congratulations to Earth Photo 2023 overall winner Michal Siarek, for his outstanding photography project documenting the rescue of big cats from Ukraine to Poznań
