The deadline for the Environmental Photographer of the Year 2011 competition is approaching fast, so please do remind any arts, educational or other relevant contacts you have to pass on to photographers of all ages that they have until 5pm on 31st July to enter.

And please remember that this year we introduced a new video category for short film clips of between 5 and 30 seconds on all environmental issues.

As always, the competition is completely free to enter and is open to international amateur and professional photographers of any age, encouraging entries that are contemporary, creative, resonant, original and beautiful. The winning photographs come together to form the most outstanding collection of environmental, social and natural photographs in the world.
