Press Release: CIWEM logo

2008’s international Environmental Photographer of the Year competition is now open.

The competition seeks to celebrate photographers who use their ability to raise awareness of environmental and social issues. It encourages entries that are traditional, contemporary, avant-garde, ironic, creative, experimental, subversive, subtle, strong, resonant, challenging, political, original and beautiful. But most of all, the competition celebrates the power of photography to inspire people around the world to start taking care of our environment.

The competition is open to all professional and amateur, national and international photographers working with digital and traditional photography. This year’s categories are Changing Climates; A World of Difference; Quality of Life; and The Natural World. This will also be the first year of a special Under 21 category which has no thematic boundaries.

The entries will be judged by some of the most respected environmental photographers in the industry, including Gary Braasch, winner of the Ansel Adams Award for Conservation Photography, Anthony Epes and Ronnie Israel.

The competition is organised by CIWEM, so winners will have their winning work published in CIWEM’s international monthly magazine WEM, take part in a roving exhibition throughout the year and be showcased on CIWEM’s popular website. The overall winner will receive recognition as the international Environmental Photographer of the Year.

Individual pieces of work will be judged on impact, creativity, composition, originality and technical abilities.
