The Judges said

“We are looking for your best image that may equally be one of stunning beauty or a dramatic shot that can shock, educate, raise awareness or encourage positivity in this field.”

The competition is open for entries from any photographer in three separate categories: “In Celebration of our Planet”, “Causes, Effects & Solutions”, “The Involvement of Man” and “People’s Choice” in which winners will be selected by followers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter based on their likes and shares. Entrants can submit a maximum of 20 images in total across one or more category. Closing date for entries is midnight on 15 August 2018.
