Win over €1,000 and an exclusive Fjorden x EyeEm Professional Smartphone Camera Grip
The past year showed us that we can adapt and introduce urgent measures when a crisis hits, yet when it comes to the climate crisis we’ve lagged behind. This is the time for us to use the power of photography to change perspectives and open eyes around the world to the climate crisis.
That’s why we partnered with MPB to bring this new category to The EyeEm Awards 2021. MPB is the world’s largest online platform for used photography and videography equipment, recirculating 300,000 cameras and lenses every year and extending the life and creative potential of kit for visual storytellers around the world. Using guidelines supplied by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, MPB proactively measures its circularity so it can set targets to continually improve its environmental performance and green credentials.
The Environmentalist was about picturing the life of our Earth and those who inhabit it. We wanted to uncover stories and visualize beyond what we see all the time. We wanted to celebrate photography that showcases life on Earth today and shows what it will mean for tomorrow.
