Congratulations to the winners of the EGU22 Photo Competition!

For this year’s Photo Contest, EGU received scores of amazing images capturing a broad spectrum of the geosciences. After the selection committee whittled the field down to 10 finalists, members have been voting for their favourites throughout EGU22’s week-long conference. After an enthusiastic response from our online and on-site voters, we are now ready and very excited to announce the winners!


Congratulations to these superb photographers!


A peaceful sunset view of Byzantine engineering by Athanasios Serafeim

Sunset view of the Simonopetra (Greek: Σιμωνόπετρα, literally: “Simon’s Rock”) Monastery, on the southern coast of the Athos peninsula, in Northern Greece. The monastery, which was built during the 13th century, is located at an altitude of 300 meters from the sea level, on a granite rock hillside and is one of the most daring buildings of Byzantine engineering, as it is a seven-storey tower building. The whole peninsula is an UNESCO world heritage site and is protected since 1988.
