EPOTY22 takes a more ethical approach

CIWEM assembled a team of experts on ethics to look through this year’s Environmental Photographer of the Year entries. Their advice is helping the judging panel to pick this year’s winners based on tighter ethical standards.

CIWEM launched the annual Environmental Photographer of the Year (EPOTY) competition 15 years ago, to celebrate people’s ability to innovate and survive. EPOTY’s winning images force you to stop and think about our impact on the planet and inspire us to try to live sustainably.

We expect these photos to be challenging and will raise tough, but important issues such as environmental racism and exploitation. But we also want our photographic platform to uphold the rights and dignity of the people who appear in EPOTY photos.
