111 shortlisted photographs submitted for the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year competition will go on view at the Royal Geographical Society in London from 22 June-10 July 2015. They were selected from over ten thousand images from across sixty countries. Included is the work of Society member Simon Roberts HonFRPS.
The photographs and films demonstrate the dynamic link between environmental and social issues in a way that aims to makes viewers think differently about the world around us. Works examine issues such as innovation, sustainable development, biodiversity, poverty, climate change, human rights, culture, natural disasters and population growth.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony on 25 June 2015.
Nigel Hendley, CIWEM Interim Chief Executive said: "The EPOTY competition provides a platform to raise awareness of environmental issues fundamental to our organisation; climate change, environmental pollution, water resource management, wastewater and flood risk management. Entries for the 2015 award were of the highest standard ever."
