For all environmental photographers, there is an opportunity to enter an internationally recognised competition.
The Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year competition is an international showcase for the very best in environmental photography and film.
It was launched in 2007 by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) & honours amateurs and professionals of all ages. It provides an opportunity for photographers to share images of environmental and social issues with international audiences, and to enhance our understanding of the causes, consequences and solutions to climate change and social inequality.
Following a hugely successful first year partnership, Atkins, one of the world’s leading design, engineering and project management consultancies, are once again sponsoring the competition, allowing for two significant improvements this year. 2014 sees the introduction of the Atkins Cityscape Prize of £1,000, and it is hoped that the competition will be open to more photographers this year, as it is now free to enter.
Prizes for the 2014 competition include:
- the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year of £5000
- the Atkins CIWEM Young Environmental Photographer of the Year (Under 18) of £1000
- the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Film of the Year of £1000
In addition, the competition this year awards two further prizes: the Atkins Cityscape Prize of £1000 and the Forestry Commission England Exhibition Award (one photographer will be invited to exhibit a solo show at one of England’s public forests).
