Earth.Org Photo CompetitionEO Global Wildlife & Natural World Photography Competition 2022

As the saying goes: “a picture is worth a thousand words.” We at Earth.Org strongly believes that photography and imagery has the power to inspire, educate and galvanise action into protecting and preserving our home and planet.

Our Global Wildlife & Natural World Photography Competition 2021 saw more than 400 talented photographers from over 60 countries submit their work, all of whom share a passion for the environment and uncovering our planet’s natural beauty. Tharmapalan Tilaxan from Sri Lanka was awarded Overall Best Environment Photo, Alain Schroeder from Belgium took the top prize in the Wildlife in Peril category while Chin Leong Teo from Singapore won Human Impacts on Environment category. Chin’s stunning works were also converted into impact NFTs in a collaboration with Earth.Org, in which proceeds help us continue to deliver our free data-journalism, as well support our ecosystem of changemakers.
