The Environmental Photographer of the Year competition is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a star-studded judging panel, including polymath Stephen Fry.
“Our cameras can be turned from the narcissistic tool of the selfie into a weapon in the war on environmental destruction,” he said.

First launched in 2007 by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), the contest showcases the best in environmental photography.
“This excellent competition encourages all those with cameras to look at our environment with new eyes to see the environmental impact of things around us, sometimes in the most surprising places,” said Fry.
The judging panel also includes rower Helen Glover, broadcaster Ben Fogle, naturalist Steve Backshall, horticulturalist Alys Fowler, fashion stylist Ayishat Akanbi, and renowned photographers Tim Parkin and Ashley Cooper. A full list of judges is available on the EPOTY website.
