Entries close on 4 May 2021 so don't delay. The best image in each category will be awarded £250 and, along with other shortlisted entries, will be displayed in the Earth Photo exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society, London between 28 June and 30 August and within the forests of Forestry England.
The judging panel is once again headed by award-winning photographer Marissa Roth, a member of the photojournalism team that won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the 1992 LA riots. Roth has worked for the LA Times, the New York Times, Newsweek and Entertainment Weekly and is a Fellow of the RGS-IBG. Katie Burton, the editor of Geographical is also on the panel.
