People, Nature, Place and Change is the focus of Earth Photo, a new competition and exhibition from the Forestry Commission England and the Royal Geographical Society.
It’s all part of aiming for a better understanding of the world around us.
“We believe that photography has a profound national and international influence and that a picture is worth a thousand words; images continue to influence public understanding of the world around us and convey meaning and emotion beyond the barriers of language,” says the Earth Photo blurb.
Earth Photo aims to reveal the story behind the pictures: informing, entertaining and engaging audiences of all kinds and encouraging conversations to begin about their subjects.
The Earth Photo free exhbition will be at the Royal Geographical Society, London from July to September 2018 and on a national tour to Forestry Commission England forests including at Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest in Kent, Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire and Grizedale Forest in the heart of the Lake District, Cumbria.
To enter, submit still photographs or films (between 5 second and 5 minutes). All photographs and films entered must have been completed since 1 January 2016.
Entry is by online submission through this website, and deadline for entry is by 5pm (BST) on Monday 18 June.
Take a look at the rules and take a glimpse of what the judges will be looking for. There’s a £20 entrance fee, btw.
