Earth Photo

Developed jointly with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), Earth Photo aims to stimulate conversations about the world, its inhabitants and our treatment of both. Photographers, both amateur and professional, were invited to submit up to ten photographs or films to Earth Photo, an international photography competition and exhibition.
