Following on from helping the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition with their judging, I was also asked to help judge the Environmental Photographer of the Year (alongside the excellent photographer Stephen Vaughan). It may not have the profile of some larger competitions but because entry is free it attracts a great deal of entries from around the world. Over ten thousand images were submitted this year from across 60 countries and I was very surprised at the amount of great work submitted from surprising locations (such as Iran for instance). This year’s competition was no exception and although it was hard work selecting a range of pictures for the exhibition, I was very happy with the final choices.

There is an exhibition of the final one hundred pictures at the Royal Geographical Society in London from 22 June - 10 July 2015. The exhibition will then tour UK forest venues, supported by the Forestry Commission England, including Grizedale Forest visitor centre, Cumbria, 18 July-7 September.

The final winner of the competition was one of my personal favourites - the composition and beauty as well as the rare positive message added up to a worthy winner. We’ve included a few more of my favourite images here but if you can definitely get to the exhibition either while it’s in London on its travels.
