EARTH PHOTO: CALL FOR ENTRIES
Photographers, both amateur and professional, are invited to submit up to ten photographs or films for the inaugural edition of Earth Photo. The international photography competition and exhibition, developed jointly by Forestry Commission England and the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), aims to enable a better understanding of the world around us through project partners’ complementary disciplines of Geography and the Environment. Earth Photo will focus on four key themes – People, Nature, Place and Change.
Shortlisted works will be exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society, London in Summer 2018, before touring to Forestry Commission England locations including: Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest, Kent; Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire; and Grizedale Forest in the heart of the Lake District, Cumbria.
A range of Prizes will be awarded including opportunities with Forestry Commission England; editorial coverage by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and inclusion in their world-renowned Picture Library; four Prizes for dedicated subject categories – People, Nature, Place and Change; a Next Generation Award for outstanding emerging talent; and a Short Film Award.
The exhibition and awards will be chosen by an expert panel of selectors from the fields of Photography, Film, Geography and Ecology. The dynamic selection panel comprises: Yvonne Barmettler, Natural History Museum, Basel, Switzerland; Levon Biss, Photographer; Clare Grafik, Head of Exhibitions, The Photographers’ Gallery, London, UK; Harry Hook, Photographer; Deborah Ireland, Author and Curator; Simon Norfolk, Photographer; Paul Presley, Editor, Geographical Magazine; Lisa Rebori, Vice President of Collections, The Houston Museum of Natural Science, USA; and Ian Gambles, Director, Forestry Commission England.
