So you consider yourself environmental?!

Partner agency Specialist Stock has passed us this information on the Environmental Photographer of the Year contest, open now for both photos and video: “The Environmental Photographer of the Year is calling for entries that deal with some of the most important challenges of our time, and this year a new video category has been introduced to further raise awareness of environmental and social issues.”

The competition will run until 31st of July 2011, with judging taking place throughout August and September. Winners receive cash prizes and all winning entries are displayed in the Environmental Photographer of the Year exhibition, launched in London.  Click here for contest details.

If you find out about other photographer competitions and opportunities, please share and we’ll spread the word.  And if you are an age fotostock photographer who has won a photo or video award, please let us know.  We’d love to brag for you!
