The Environmental Photographer of the Year competition (EPOTY) is organised by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), with the aim to showcase the most inspirational environmental photography from around the globe.

CIWEM pledges to inform and educate the public and experts alike, through materials that are grounded in fact, evidence, and science. EPOTY supports this mission as it harnesses the power of storytelling and so makes events from across the world more accessible. The competition highlights environmental issues by presenting:

  • challenging and inspiring photos
  • photo journalistic narratives
  • celebrations of innovation and hope

On our website you can learn more about EPOTY throughout the years – including our partners, ethics statement, ethics and jury panels, and past winners. You can always contact us with any further questions. For more information on CIWEM, see www.ciwem.org.
