Earth Photo showcases the very best in geographical and environmental visual media and how it can better connect us with the world by telling stories and encouraging discussion about our planet, its inhabitants and our treatment of both.
Developed in partnership with Forestry England, Earth Photo aims to enable a better understanding of the world around us through the complementary disciplines of the environment and geography. Amateur and professional photographers of all ages are invited to submit up to 10 photographs or films that focus on the key themes of People, Place, Nature, Changing Forests and A Climate of Change.
