Awards 2021: The Environmentalist
Your Mission
The past year has shown us we can adapt and introduce urgent measures when a crisis hits, yet when it comes to the climate crisis we’re lagging behind. This is the time for us to use the power of photography to change perspectives and open eyes around the world to the climate crisis.
That’s why we’ve partnered with MPB to bring this new category to The EyeEm Awards 2021. MPB is the world’s largest online platform for used photography and videography equipment, recirculating 300,000 cameras and lenses every year and extending the life and creative potential of kit for visual storytellers around the world. Using guidelines supplied by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, MPB proactively measures its circularity so it can set targets to continually improve its environmental performance and green credentials.
The Environmentalist is about picturing the life of our Earth and those who inhabit it. We want to uncover stories and visualize beyond what we see all the time. We want to celebrate photography that showcases life on Earth today and shows what it will mean for tomorrow.
Our jury is looking for creativity, visual risk-taking, and compelling stories that capture the incredible natural ecosystems that sustain us and inspire us; how wildlife and human life co-exists whether that is in seamless harmony or perilous confrontation. We want to see a broad range of stories, from the destructive effects of natural disasters and changing climates to positive stories of the planet’s natural regeneration or the remarkable ways that people and communities are protecting and rescuing it from its vulnerabilities.
Can you use photography to breathe life into our Earth’s narrative?
