Got some incredible shots that raise awareness about pressing issues? Passionate about climate change, biodiversity loss or habitat destruction? We want you!

We’ve partnered with the prestigious Head On Photo Festival to launch the Environmental Photo Award. The inaugural award welcomes photographers of any experience level from around the globe to submit images that provoke reflection about our world and our place in it.

The Head On Photo Festival has nurtured photographers around the globe, celebrating established and emerging artists since 2004. The Environmental Photo Award is one of a suite of awards in this year’s festival, which celebrates a variety of categories annually.

Images submitted for the Environmental Photo Award should focus on specific issues, elements or people impacting the natural environment.

“Australian Geographic hopes to support those photographers working in sites of spirited activism, and those who tell the urgent stories about climate change, biodiversity loss, unsustainable development, pollution and inspire change,” explains AG Picture Editor, Nicky Catley.

Photographers can enter the Environmental Photo Award for their chance to win a cash prize of AU$10,000. The winning images will be displayed at Bondi Beach from 11 November–3 December 2023.

Entries close 16 July 2023.
