THE FACE
OF THE EARTH

Deadline: 30 September 2019

From icy polar snowscapes to vast and arid deserts; from sweeping agricultural plains to dense tropical rainforest; the earth has always provided an awe-inspiring backdrop to our short stay.

This month we want you to capture the beauty of our shared planet – nature’s landscapes and man’s influence on them. Let’s step out into our world and capture its majesty! Landscapes, cityscapes, conceptual, aerial, documentary…. All genres welcome.

Judge: Nick Brandt

With a focus on the escalating destruction of the natural world, and a profound love for East Africa, Nick Brandt creates visually complex tableaux that comment on environmental devastation, and the accelerating annihilation of the animal kingdom. His breathtaking style has won accolades across the world, with large recent solo exhibitions in the Multimedia Museum of Art in Moscow, The National Museum of Finland in Helsinki and Fotografiska in Stockholm, and multiple exhibitions over the last 15 years in cities across the world including in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris and Berlin.
