Last year, we were thrilled to receive hundreds of amazing entries based around our list of 100 Great Geosites. The winners were displayed at the Geological Society during Earth Science Week, were used to create our first ever calendar, and featured on the BBC website.
As well as a range of prizes, this year’s winners will also have their photographs displayed during Earth Science Week (8th-16th October), and will feature in the Geological Society’s 2017 calendar.
Earth Science in Action
This year’s competition shares its theme with Earth Science Week – ‘Earth Science in Action.’ Photographers can interpret the theme in any way they wish – from the dynamic processes that shape our Earth, to fieldwork or exploration. The only rule is, images must feature the geology of the UK & Ireland.
To enter, send your images as an attachment, or a file transfer, to firstname.lastname@example.org, interpreting the theme in any way you wish. Please also include your name and postal address.
Winning photographs will be featured in our 2017 calendar, with full credit. In addition, first, second and third prizes will be awarded:
1st prize: £100
2nd prize: £50
3rd prize: £25
All 12 winners will also receive a collection of geological goodies, including our much coveted rock hammer usb sticks, a copy of the calendar, and a year’s free subscription to Geoscientist magazine.
The competition is free to enter, and open to all. You may submit as many photographs as you like.
Photographs must be submitted electronically, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, ideally landscape format, and large enough to be featured in a print calendar (minimum dimensions: 216mm x 154 mm).
Entries must be emailed to email@example.com by midnight on the closing date, Monday 19st September.
