September - November 2019

The CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year showcases the very best in environmental photography, by highlighting the terrible impacts being wrought on our planet by its most dominant species. The competition also celebrates humanity’s innate ability to survive and innovate, lending hope to us all that we can overcome challenges to live sustainably.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals recognise the intricate interconnected nature of development, poverty reduction, equality, security and climate action and the unprecedented effort from all sectors of society needed to tackle the defining issues of our time. The competition encourages entries that are contemporary, creative, resonant, challenging, original and beautiful, but most of all, images that will inspire people around the world to start taking care of our environment and responsibility for the effect our actions have.
