The photographers shortlisted to exhibit at this year's Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year, at the Royal Geographic Society in London have been announced. 

A shortlist of 60 exceptional environmental photographs will go on show at the Royal Geographical Society in London from 29 June to 21 August 2016. These are from a submission of approximately ten thousand images by photographers and filmmakers from across seventy countries internationally. The exhibition will then tour to Grizedale Forest, Cumbria, supported by Forestry Commission England.

The selected photographs and films reflect the urgent environmental and social concerns that surround us today: topics include recent natural catastrophes induced by the changing climate, the effects of population growth on the urban environment and the resourceful ways in which the human race is preserving the earth’s biodiversity.

Commenting on the competition,Terry Fuller, CIWEM Chief Executive, said: "Each year we are delighted to receive such a huge number of outstanding entries from photographers and film makers who are inspired by the environment. The competition embodies CIWEM’s core aims to improve water and environmental management and raise awareness of the associated social and cultural issues.

The images from the EPOTY competition highlight the most urgent challenges we face, remind us of the importance of our work and inspire us to do better. We look forward to sharing the images with CIWEM members and the public at this year’s much anticipated exhibition."

The entries were judged on impact, relevance, originality and technical ability and prizes will be announced on 28 June at a ceremony presented by Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
