Earth Photo

Earth Photo is an annual programme of awards, exhibitions and events jointly developed by Forestry England, leading visual arts consultancy Parker Harris, and the Society with Jaguar Land Rover.

Established in 2018, Earth Photo is a world-leading international programme dedicated to engaging with still and moving image makers working across multiple genres sharing the prescient issues affecting the climate and life on our planet. Its main objective is to reveal the narratives behind the pictures, informing, entertaining and engaging audiences while encouraging conversations about our world, its peoples, environments, and the changing climate.
