Michele Palazzi wins Environmental Photographer of the Year Award

Rome-based photographer Michele Palazzi wins £5000 after his image Gone with the Dust #02 was selected from more than 3000 entries at this year’s CIWEM’s Environmental Photographer of the Year Award.

Photographer Eleanor Bennett won the Young Environmental Photographer of the Year (under 18) Award of £1000, while the Environmental Video of the Year Award of £1000 was awarded to Jonathan Goldberg for Shaking the Tree, which shows how one man inspired an army of fruit harvesters in his local community.

The 3000 entries were judged on impact, composition, originality and technical ability by the 2013 selectors: Nick Reeves, executive director of CIWEM; Nick Roberts, Atkins strategy director; Dr David Haley HonFCIWEM, senior research fellow at MIRIAD Manchester Metropolitan University; and award winning documentary photographer, Adam Hinton. 

An exhibition of the winning images will go on show at the Royal Geographical Society in London from 10 April to 03 May. For more details, visit the CIWEM website.
