Photography Competition – EARTH PHOTO – Call for Entries

Share

Earth Photo is an innovative new competition and exhibition developed jointly by Forestry Commission England and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) which reflects the organisations’ common interest in enabling a better understanding of the world around us through their complementary disciplines of the Environment and Geography. Earth Photo will focus on People, Nature, Place and Change and award categories will celebrate the best in each subject, as well as recognising emerging talent through a Next Generation Award.

Earth Photo believe that photography has a profound national and international influence and that a picture is worth a thousand words; images continue to influence public understanding of the world around us and convey meaning and emotion beyond the barriers of language.

Earth Photo’s main objective is to reveal the story behind the pictures: informing, entertaining and engaging audiences of all kinds and encouraging conversations to begin about their subjects. Earth Photo will enable the viewer not only to appreciate a single or group sequence of images, but also to understand the ‘back story’ to a picture.

Thirteen 511-inches screens and thirty two laser projectors installed in the Santo Stefano al Ponte church, will ensure this is an event, always to be remembered.

There will be four acts to this unique experience, more in line with a revolutionary opera. Each depicting an element of human emotion. Including: Act 1 – Thoughtful, Act 2 – Action, Act 3 – Drama and finally Act 4 – Funny, the grotesque.

The exhibition will be held inside the ancient medieval cloister of the Church of Santo Stefano al Ponte – Florence – Italy from 5 April to 19 April 2018 (with a footfall of 3k per week) along with rare portraits and caricatures of the French painter Claude Monet.
