From Parker Harris:

NOTE there is an entry fee for this competition

Earth Photo is an innovative competition and exhibition developed jointly by Forestry England and 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. Earth Photo will focus on photographs or films which describe one of the following subjects; People, Place, Nature and Changing Forests. We are delighted to announce that for the 2020 exhibition we have a special category; A Climate of Change, to mark COP26, The UN climate change summit in Glasgow in November 2020. Earth Photo invites entries for this new category which enables photographers and film-makers to advance ideas about any dimension of climate change. This work might explore impacts, or efforts to mitigate risks, or to adapt to a changing climate. It might engage with how climate change changes ‘us’. The best in each category will be awarded £250 each.

We believe that photography has a profound national and international influence and that a picture is worth a thousand words; images continue to influence public understanding of the world around us and convey meaning and emotion beyond the barriers of language.

Earth Photo’s main objective is to reveal the story behind the pictures: informing, entertaining and engaging audiences of all kinds and encouraging conversations to begin about their subjects. Earth Photo will enable the viewer not only to appreciate a single or group sequence of images, but also to understand the ‘back story’ to a picture.

DEADLINE April 7, 10.00 BST
