Photographers have only a few weeks left to enter this year’s Environmental Photographer of the Year competition.

This year’s categories are Changing Climates, World of Difference, Quality of Life and The Natural World. There is also an award for Young Environmental Photographer of the Year.

Work will be judged on impact, creativity, composition, originality and technical abilities, say organisers.

The best entries will go on show in Covent Garden, London later this year.

The closing date for the contest, which is open to amateurs and professionals, is 5pm on 31 July 2009.
