The winning 100 images will be announced at the end of August in time for the launch of the exhibition, which opens on the 1st September.

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.
Yesterday, we said that more details would follow regarding the mObgraphia 2018 Mobile Photo Festival (which is currently open to receive submissions), today we can reveal them.

The organisers are looking for and select stories told through visual narratives of all kinds, from documentary approaches conveying important context to this theme, to currently interesting and relevant narratives about it.

I am very excited to announce that I am once again, part of the esteemed Judging panel for the Mobile Photography Awards this year. The Mobile Photography Awards are very dear to my heart as I know how much Dan Berman (the founder of these awards), values and cares for all of your work and how he strives to ensure that it is viewed by as many establishments around the world as possible.
It is very prestigious to win an award at the Mobile Photography Awards and for me personally, it is a great honour to Judge your work.
We have also pasted an audio interview from 2012 between myself and Dan Berman within our post. If you haven’t listened to it before, please do so. We hope to be interviewing Dan Berman again soon and will let you know about that.
The third edition of the hugely popular ZEISS Photography Award is now open for entries. Photographers are asked to submit their best series of 5 – 10 images to the brief: “Seeing Beyond – Untold Stories “.
What’s up for grabs?
– $12k worth of ZEISS lenses
– $3k travel expenses
– Trips to London and Germany
– Exhibited at Somerset House, London
– Worldwide exposure
The ZEISS Photography Award is now in its third year – and is calling on ambitious photographers from across the globe to present their work around the theme “Seeing Beyond – Untold Stories” to the international jury of experts. The focus of the photo series should be on stories that have not yet been told (or have not yet been told to the end). The theme “Untold Stories” can and should be understood in the broadest sense – the works can examine the familiar from a new perspective or cover topics that have not received much attention up until now. The goal is for photographers to push the creative boundaries and surpass themselves photographically.
The ZEISS Photography Award is jointly organized by ZEISS and the World Photography Organisation. Last year, around 4,700 photographers from 132 countries submitted more than 31,000 photos.
Photographers are asked to submit a series of 5 – 10 images, including a description of the images, online. Entries close February 6, 2018.
