| Extreme E’s Amazon legacy programme partner, The Nature Conservancy, has announced its 2022 Global Photo Contest is now open for submissions.|
The celebrated global photography competition will begin accepting submissions starting from today (1 August 2022) until. the contest’s deadline of 31 August 2022.
The 2022 panel of judges will award TNC’s Grand Prize – a trip to Punta del Este, Uruguay, to attend the Extreme E Season Finale, the Energy X Prix.
Past winning photographs have come from across the globe and featured a wide range of incredible animals, locations, and moments that celebrate the breathtaking beauty and crucial importance of nature. The 2021 contest received more than 100,000 photo submissions from a record-breaking 158 countries, with the top prize going to photographer Anup Shah from the UK for his photo of a western lowland gorilla walking through a cloud of butterflies in the Central African Republic.
The 2022 contest has several exciting changes for entrants. This year, the contest debuts two new categories, Plants or Fungi and Climate, to accompany last year’s categories of People & Nature, Landscape, Water, and Wildlife. As the world faces a worsening climate crisis, the Climate category offers participating photographers a way to illustrate the toll that climate change takes on communities and ecosystems around the globe, and demonstrate the urgent need for continued action.
Winning images will be selected by a panel of renowned judges that includes leading conservation photographer Ami Vitale as well as YouTube star and wildlife educator Coyote Peterson.
Also up for grabs is the Guest Judge Choice award (chosen by Ami Vitale) with a prize of a $5,000 USD-value camera kit, and the Celebrity Choice award (chosen by Coyote Peterson) with a prize of a $2,500 USD gift card and a virtual meeting with Coyote.
First place winners of the contest’s six categories will each receive a gift card valued at $750 USD, while second-place winners will each receive a $500 USD gift card.
Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to enter, with all of the winners to be announced in September.
