Entries for this year’s Environmental Photographer of the Year competition are open, and there are fewer than 30 days left to submit your photographs
The 2019 Environmental Photographer of the Year competition from the Charted Institution of Water and Environmental Management is proudly supported by Olympus, the United Nations Environment Programme, and Arup. Entrants are expected to provide beautiful and skilful photographs, engaging enough to inspire serious action with regards to reducing impact on the environment and promoting sustainability.
This year’s submissions will fall into a range of categories including a young photographer award, with each supporting different UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is hoped that each category’s winning photograph will draw awareness to and inspire change in the areas of poverty, inequality and environmental degradation, among others.|
With regards to Olympus’ support, Georgina Pavellin, Marketing Manager, stated: “Olympus are proud to support Environmental Photographer of the Year. Capturing moments and documenting change is vital to our lives and we hope that photographers are able to utilise this platform to not only demonstrate their talents but also help to raise awareness of current issues to evoke change.”
Photographers from all over the world are welcome to enter the competition with up to 10 photographs before the competition closes on 30 June.
