Street and documentary photographers have just 7 days left to enter the Environmental Photographer of the Year 2014 competition.
The competition is open to amateur and professional photographers of all ages.
The deadline for entry is 5pm on 31 March 2014 and you can enter up to 10 still photographs or short films or a mix of the two.
There is no entry fee.
Prizes for the 2014 competition include:
Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year: £5000
Atkins CIWEM Young Environmental Photographer of the Year (Under 18): £1000
Atkins CIWEM Environmental Film of the Year: £1000
There are two further prizes to be awarded:
The Atkins Cityscape Prize: £1000
The Forestry Commission England Exhibition Award: one photographer will be invited to exhibit a solo show at one of England’s public forests
Entries will be judged on the following criteria:
Impact – does it illustrate immediate, subtle or resonant messages?
Creativity – is it unusual, thoughtful, beautiful, subversive or ironic?
Originality – is the subject treated differently and is the subject matter new?
Composition – perspective, balance, clarity of meaning and focus of statement
Technical quality – clarity, focus, lighting, exposure and colour
The works will be displayed at the prestigious Royal Geographical Society in London in June 2014, followed by a tour to forest venues nationally, supported by Forestry Commission England.
The competition website says that: “The Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year is an international showcase for the very best in environmental photography and film. The competition encourages entries that are contemporary, creative, resonant, challenging, original and beautiful, but most of all, pictures that will inspire people around the world to start taking care of our environment.”
