Environmental Photographer of the Year winners announced


These thought-provoking and hauntingly beautiful winning images tackle a range of environmental and social issues.
Images of environmental and social issues can be emotive, thought-provoking and extremely powerful. And the winners of this year’s prestigious Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year are no exception. They were announced by the world’s greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, in a ceremony at the Royal Geographical Society.

Sara Lindström claimed the prestigious title of Environmental Photographer of the Year 2016 for her imposing photograph of a wildfire in southern Alberta, Canada on a warm July day. “The big flames were thriving on the dry land and had me completely mesmerised in fear and awe,” she says. Sara has visited over 50 countries, capturing the beauty of the more remote corners of the Earth.
