The inaugural LensCulture Earth Awards is our first call for photography focused on the planet. We are awarding $25,000 in cash grants as well as video projections at international photo festivals, visibility with LensCulture Insiders, a Printed Annual and more.

Deadline is April 30th, 2015 at Midnight PST.
