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.
Earth Photo 2023
This year brings some exciting changes, and for the first time, the category for submissions is completely open. We encourage practitioners of all ages, working in all genres, to send us their most compelling works as relevant to the focus of Earth Photo. Alongside this we have developed an impressive selection of awards, plus a range of collaborations with national and international arts organisations to increase exposure and opportunities for practitioners and audiences.
Individuals and collectives are encouraged to submit up to 10 images, as singles or a series. In addition to photography, we welcome short films between five seconds and five minutes long.
Submitted photographs and films will be judged by a panel of experts chaired by Louise Fedotov-Clements, National Curator of Contemporary Art at Forestry England and Co-Founder/Patron, FORMAT International Photography Festival.
The deadline for entries is 5.00pm on Tuesday 2 May 2023.
