The Earth Science Week 2019 photography competition

Photographer_Photo competition images

The Earth Science Week photography competition is an opportunity to share your images of the geology all around us, and what it means to you. 

Previous winners have featured in the national press, as well as being displayed at Burlington House throughout Earth Science Week and other key events. Each year, we produce a calendar featuring our twelve winners. 

The 2019 competition is open to entries!

Deadline: Monday 23 September 

This year’s Earth Science Week theme is ‘Geoscience is for everyone’ – whether you’re into mountains, volcanoes, minerals, fossils or climate change, whether you want to attend lectures, run school geoscience clubs or simply stargaze from a window, geoscience can be done anywhere and is for everyone!

This year’s photo competition is celebrating the theme by inviting images of the geology all around us from anywhere in the world. Send us pictures of geology where you live, a favourite holiday destination, a place you’ve studied or worked at, or somewhere that inspires you! Whatever you choose, please submit your photographs with a few lines about the subject of your image and/or what the site means to you.
