The Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year 2016 presents a shortlist of 60 exceptional environmental photographs, from a submission of ten thousand images by photographers and filmmakers internationally. The exhibition will be on show at the Royal Geographical Society, before touring to Grizedale Forest, supported for the fourth year by Forestry Commission England.

The photographs and films reflect the urgent environmental and social concerns that surround us today. Topics include recent natural catastrophes induced by the changing climate, the effects of population growth on the urban environment, and the resourceful ways in which the human race is preserving the earth’s biodiversity.

The exhibition at Grizedale Forest will be accompanied by a portfolio showcase by photographer Pedram Yazdani, winner of the Forestry Commission England People Nature and Economy Award 2016.
