EGU Photo Competition 2022: Now open for submissions!

If you are registered for the 2022 General Assembly EGU22 (2327 May), you can take part in our annual photo competition. Winners receive free registration to next year’s General Assembly!

It’s that time of year again! Yes, yesterday on the 1 February, the twelfth annual EGU photo competition opened for submissions!!

Until 14 April, every participant registered for the General Assembly can submit up to three original photos and one moving image on any broad theme related to the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. Photos submitted can be recent or from previous years so if there’s a beautiful photo that you’ve been holding onto, this could be your year to enter it! A panel of judges will shortlist the best 10 photos and one moving image to be exhibited in an online gallery during the conference. General Assembly participants will then vote for their favourite photos and the three winning images will be announced online on the last day of the meeting. Winners will receive a free registration to EGU’s 2023 General Assembly!

If you submit your images to the photo competition, they will also be included in the EGU’s open access photo and video database, Imaggeo. You retain full rights of use for any photos or videos submitted to the database as they are licensed and distributed by EGU under a Creative Commons license.You will need to register on Imaggeo so that the organisers can appropriately process your photos.

For more information, please check the EGU Photo Competition page on Imaggeo. If you’d like to get some inspiration and see some beautiful photographs right now, you can check out all of the 2010 to 2021 winners here!
