Wrapping a Surviving Tree by Luke Duggleby

The Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year 2014 exhibition is touring the forest venues nationally and will be at Grizedale’s visitor centre until November.

From over 10,000 entries this year, the panel of judges selected a total of 94 photographs and films that are contemporary, creative, resonant, original and beautiful, by international photographers and filmmakers.

The entries were judged on impact, composition, originality and technical ability by the panel. Selected works examine issues such as innovation, sustainable development, biodiversity, poverty, climate change, human rights, culture, natural disasters and population growth.

The prestigious top prize was this year awarded to Mohammad Fahim Ahamed Riyad from Bangladesh, who received £5,000 for his captivating image entitled In Search of Life, which shows a fireman searching for signs of life following a fire in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The Forestry Commission England Exhibition Award, awarded by Ian Gambles, director of Forestry Commission England, offers the winning photographer a solo show at one of England’s public forests. It was presented to Luke Duggleby, an award-winning British photographer, based in Asia. His image, Wrapping a Surviving Tree, is part of a series documenting an eco-warrior monk movement in Cambodia.

Launched in 2007 by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), and sponsored by Atkins, one of the world’s leading design, engineering and project management consultancies, the exhibition is an international showcase for the very best in environmental photography and film.

It runs until November 2 and is available to view during the normal visitor centre opening hours.
