Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year 2016 Exhibition

Posted: Wednesday 1st June 2016

A shortlist of 60 exceptional environmental photographs will go on show at the Royal Geographical Society in London from 29 June to 22 August 2016.

These are from a submission of approximately ten thousand images by photographers and filmmakers from across seventy countries internationally. The exhibition will then tour to Grizedale Forest, Cumbria, supported by Forestry Commission England. The selected photographs and films reflect the urgent environmental and social concerns that surround us today: topics include recent natural catastrophes induced by the changing climate, the effects of population growth on the urban environment, and the resourceful ways in which the human race is preserving the earth's biodiversity.

Launched in 2007 by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), and sponsored by Atkins, one of the world's most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies, the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year competition provides an international showcase for the very best in environmental photography and film, by both amateurs and professionals. Atkins and CIWEM aim to inspire a global audience to think differently about contemporary social and environmental issues, including sustainable development, pollution and human rights.

Terry Fuller, CIWEM Chief Executive, observes: "Each year we are delighted to receive such a huge number of outstanding entries from photographers and film makers who are inspired by the environment. The competition embodies CIWEM's core aims to improve water and environmental management and raise awareness of the associated social and cultural issues.

The images from the EPOTY competition highlight the most urgent challenges we face, remind us of the importance of our work and inspire us to do better. We look forward to sharing the images with CIWEM members and the public at this year's much anticipated exhibition."
