LINK - “The Environmental Photographer Of The Year 2021”: 26 Thought-Provoking Environmental Photographs

Pro member

All around us, we're seeing the effects of climate change. The land is ravaged by fires, storms, floods and other disasters that might make one think that the world is ending. People all around the world have to deal with the consequences of climate change and it's terrifying to think about what might come next. Scientists and global activists have warned about the aftereffects of people's tremendous consumerism, but are their words being heard? If not words, maybe images can provoke us to think about our planet and inspire us to change.

The Environmental Photographer of the Year (EPOTY) competition showcases the most inspirational environmental photography from around the world. This year the winners of the 14th competition were revealed at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland. "The award celebrates humanity’s ability to survive and innovate and showcases thought-provoking images that call attention to our impact and inspire us to live sustainably."

The title of Environmental Photographer of the Year 2021 was given to Spanish photographer Antonio Argon Renuncio for his photo titled "The Rising Tide Sons", which depicts a child sleeping inside a house that has been destroyed by coastal erosion of Afiadenyigba beach in Ghana.

We present you the powerful winning photos from the competition, with descriptions by the photographers.
