Just before the start of Earth Science Week 2015, we announced the results of our 100 Great Geosites photo competition – 13 images which form a 2016 calendar now on sale at the Society!

Last night, at the launch of Earth Science Week, we were thrilled to present awards to 4 of the photographers who were able to join us – Caitlin Broadbent (Durdle Door), Steve McAusland (Lundy Island), Anna Saich (Seven Sisters & Beachy Head) and Louise Squire (Staffa).

One thought on “The 100 Geosites Photo Competition

  1. Such a great competition! I am an amateur photographer myself and I enjoyed following this contest. Great job! The Cuillin Hills is a great place and the photo is amazing but I think all the pictures deserve to be on the #1 spot.
