Earth Photo exhibition and competition

Earth Photo exhibition and competition

Earth Photo aims to stimulate conversations about our world, its inhabitants and our treatment of both.

Earth Photo is an innovative competition and exhibition developed jointly with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), which reflects the organisations’ common interest in enabling a better understanding of the world around us through our complementary disciplines of the Environment and Geography.

Photographers, both amateur and professional, are invited to submit up to ten photographs or films relevant to at least one of the following categories; People, Place, Nature and Changing Forests. 

‘Changing Forests’ is a brand new category for Earth Photo with the aim of revealing the stories the world’s forests have to tell today, in the face of climate change and other major challenges. 

The panel

An expert panel, chaired by Marissa Roth, will select around 50 works to be exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society, London from 6 July – 22 August 2019, before beginning a national tour of our nation's forests. The panel will select an overall winner as well as one winner within each category. Awards include cash prizes and editorial opportunities.
