The competition:

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.

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. 2014 saw the introduction of the Atkins Cityscape Prize of £1,000, and the competition became free to enter.

The competition tour is kindly supported by Forestry Comission England, they believe that woodlands and forests are vital places for contemporary artists to engage with, to make and present new work.
