Happy to share with you the news that an image of mine has been shortlisted for the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year competition. This image was taken as part of my recent project ‘Exotic Pets in China‘, supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
This is the second year running one of my images has been selected for the shortlist, following on from my film The Toxic Price of Leather winning the Environmental Film of the Year in 2014.
Here’s some more information about the award. I shall post more information about the upcoming exhibition here soon.
“Open to all professional and amateur, national and international photographers of all ages, the CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year is an international showcase for the very best in environmental photography. The competition encourages entries that are contemporary, creative, resonant, challenging, original and beautiful, but most of all, pictures that will inspire people around the world to start taking care of our environment.”
