As the saying goes: “a picture is worth a thousand words.” We at Earth.Org strongly believes that photography and imagery has the power to inspire, educate and galvanise action into protecting and preserving our home and planet.

Our Global Wildlife & Natural World Photography Competition 2022 saw more than 500 talented photographers from over 60 countries submit their work, all of whom share a passion for the environment, uncovering our planet’s natural beauty while highlighting our changing planet and the impacts of human activities.

Sujan Sarka from India was awarded both Overall Best Environment Photo and best in the Wildlife in Peril category; Md. Mudassir Hossain from Bangladesh took the top prize in Human Impacts on the Environment; while Lorenzo Mittiga from Italy won best in the inaugural Climate Action category. Chin’s stunning works were also converted into impact NFTs in a collaboration with Earth.Org, in which proceeds help us continue to deliver our free data-journalism, as well support our ecosystem of changemakers.
