EARTH PHOTO: International Photography Competition

Photographers, both amateur and professional, are invited to submit up to ten photographs or films for the inaugural edition of Earth Photo, with focus on four key themes – People, Nature, Place and Change.

The international photography competition and exhibition, developed jointly by Forestry Commission England and the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), aims to enable a better understanding of the world around us through project partners’ complementary disciplines of Geography and the Environment.

Shortlisted works will be exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society, London in Summer 2018, before touring to Forestry Commission England locations including: Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest, Kent; Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire; and Grizedale Forest in the heart of the Lake District, Cumbria.

A range of Prizes will be awarded including:

  • opportunities with Forestry Commission England;
  • editorial coverage by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and inclusion in their world-renowned Picture Library;
  • four Prizes for dedicated subject categories – People, Nature, Place and Change;
  • a Next Generation Award for outstanding emerging talent; and
  • a Short Film Award.

The exhibition and awards will be chosen by an expert panel of selectors from the fields of Photography, Film, Geography and Ecology.

Earth Photo is open to both national and international photographers of all ages. All photographs and films entered must have been completed since 1 January 2016 and meet the competition’s criteria.

Entry is by online submission through, and deadline for entry is by 5pm (BST) on Monday 18 June.
