2 Pictures from India Make it to the World’s Top Environmental Photography Competition


The Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year competition is held in London every year. The competition aims to create awareness in people and to inspire them to start taking care of the environment. This year the competition received a total of 10,000 entries from 70 countries across the globe. Out of these 10,000 entries, only 60 have been shortlisted, all of which will be featured in the worldwide famous exhibition.

The prestigious event opens on June 29, where moving images will be showcased at the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year exhibition. The venue for the event is at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington in London. The event will announce and showcase the ‘very best one in environmental photography and film’ out of the shortlisted 60 pictures.

The best selected photograph will be liable for a prize. The top prize winner in this competition will take home £3,000.

The good news is that 2 pictures from India have made it to the final 60 collection of stunning pictures. The pictures have been taken by professionals as well as amateurs of all ages from different regions of the world.

The 2 pictures, which got selected from India include-

Picture 1

This picture features two workers, who are standing in a furnace, which belches out thick smoke, to make fertilizer and fish feed. The image captures a scene from Kasba in Kolkata, West Bengal. This image has been taken by Sudipta D Chowdhury.

Picture 2

This picture captures a scene from West Bengal, India, in which a man is trying to get his pet cow to shelter since the weather out has turned bad. But the cow has perhaps decided to give him a fight and not move even a single step. This photograph has been taken by Moni Sankar.

One thing that is common between these two pictures is that both of them showcase the struggle of workers.

Fingers crossed for the results that are coming next month on June 29.
