We’re delighted to announce the winners of our photography competition, ‘100 Great Geosites.’

Based on the Society’s list of 100 geosites in the UK and Ireland, published last year, the 13 images will all feature in a 2016 calendar, available for sale soon.

The competition, open to all, asked for images featuring any of the 100 sites, which include landscapes, museums, public buildings and beaches, all of which reflect the UK and Ireland’s unique geo-heritage.

‘We were impressed with the number and quality of entries to the competition’ says Geological Society Executive Secretary Sarah Fray. ‘It’s wonderful to see such a range of diverse images, and I hope the photographs will encourage many people to explore the geology all around us in the UK and Ireland.’

All of the winning images will feature in the 2016 100 Great Geosites calendar, as well as a free exhibition at the Geological Society Monday to Friday during Earth Science Week (10th -18th October). The top three will be announced at an event to launch Earth Science Week on Monday 12th October.

Thank you to everyone who entered – and if you’re in Piccadilly between 10am-5pm Monday 12th – Friday 16th, do drop in and see the images on display in our Lower Library!
