Environmental Photographer of the Year 2014
Now open for entries, the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year competition is an international showcase for the very best in environmental photography and film. Honouring amateurs and professionals of all ages, it provides an opportunity for photographers to share images of environmental and social issues with international audiences, and to enhance our understanding of the causes, consequences and solutions to climate change and social inequality.
Following a hugely successful first year partnership, Atkins, one of the world’s leading design, engineering and project management consultancies, are once again sponsoring the competition, allowing for two significant improvements this year.
