Humanity Versus Nature

Part of PA2F Environmental Photography Award 2023

Open Judging Results
Brief

Images submitted to this category should depict the conflicting relationship between humans and nature all around the world, and the negative impact of human activities on the environment: issues related to the consequences of climate change (droughts, deforestation, extreme climate events…), the loss of biodiversity (endangered species, disastrous interactions between humans and wildlife…), as well as the depletion of the world’s water resources.

The Award offers an €11,000 prize fund, inclusion in an exclusive exhibition in Monaco, and trips for the Grand Prize winner to the launch of the exhibition in Monaco, and to visit the Amazon Research Station of the University of Ecuador, to do a photo documentary in the field, in the heart of the Ecuadorian jungle. Shortlisted photographers will also be published in the PA2F Environmental Photography Award book.
