On the occasion of the International Year of Soils, the judges also awarded an honourable mention to the best image in the Soil System Sciences category submitted to the EGU Photo Contest. The chosen image was ‘You don’t form in the wet sand’ by Nicasio T. Jiménez-Morilo. You can also vote for this image in the general contest if you feel it should be crowned winner.

In addition, this year, to celebrate the theme of the EGU 2015 General Assembly, A voyage through scales, the photo that best captured the theme of the conference was selected by the judges. The winner is the stunning ‘Badlands National Park’, by Iain Willis! Congratulations! This too is being exhibited in Hall X (basement, Blue Level) of the Austria Center Vienna.
