Land Rover is inviting entries to a new photo competition, launched in partnership with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and Forestry England. Named the ‘Earth Photo’ competition, the award hopes to inspire people to ‘get out into the landscape and appreciate their surroundings’.
Earth Photo has been running since 2018, and this is the first year that Land Rover has supported the competition. The award is not reserved for professional photographers, so if you’re a skilled amateur with a good eye, you’re in with a chance.
‘By going above and beyond to capture extraordinary images, professional and amateur photographers alike can help make a positive difference, enabling a wider vision of our world.’ _Laura Wood, Head of Global PR Brand and Partnerships, JLR_
There are five award categories for Earth Photo 2021: People, Place, Nature, Changing Forests and A Climate of Change. Entrants can submit up to 10 images and/or short films altogether; there are cash prizes for the winners, and a programme of exhibitions around the UK has been scheduled for the shortlisted artists, beginning in June 2021.
The deadline for entries is 4 May 2021.
‘We believe photography and film have a profound international influence and that images and videos speak most powerfully to viewers and convey meaning and emotion beyond the barriers of language,' said Alasdair Macleod, Head of Enterprise and Resources at the RGS (with IGB). ‘Working with Land Rover marks a new chapter for this important international competition. Land Rover’s history of exploration and ability to tackle the toughest terrain makes it the ideal partner for Earth Photo.’
More information about the competition, and details of how to enter, can be found on the Earth Photo website.
