Land Rover and the Royal Geographical Society present the Earth Photo 2021 contest on geographic and environmental themes through photos and videos.
Earth Photo is an international photographic competition that promotes environmental and geographical issues by revealing the stories behind the winning images (photos and videos).
Earth Photo 2021 explores the new frontiers of an ancient partnership. Land Rover has been working in the field for over 40 years together with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and its expeditions, both providing vehicles and experience and funding training and outreach projects.
Earth Photo includes participation in five categories: People, Places, Nature, Changing Forests, A Changing Climate. Last year the participants were 2.600, coming from all over the world.
Will participate in the competition Francesco Salvaggio, adventure photographer, known as @FranckReporter, who in the company of his camera, travels the world to discover a hidden, unexplored nature, of particular situations to capture the essence of places and people.
Francesco, Land Rover Ambassador for Italy for the new Defender, expresses its adventure soul, best representing the values and essence of the brand, always under the banner of Above & Beyond.
Laura Wood, Head of Global PR Brand & Partnerships at Jaguar Land Rover, states: “Land Rover has always offered useful initiatives for people to live better and we are therefore delighted to support the Royal Geographical Society's Earth Photo contest. Photographers - amateurs or professionals - pushing “Above and Beyond” to capture extraordinary images will help broaden our vision of the world. "
Alasdair MacLeod, Head of Enterprise and Resources of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), adds: “We believe that photos and films have a strong international impact and that the power of images is able to communicate meanings and emotions beyond the language barrier. The partnership with Land Rover writes a new chapter with this new international competition. Land Rover's heritage in expeditions and the ability of its vehicles to tackle the roughest terrain make it an ideal partner for Earth Photo. "
Amy Frascella, Land Rover Director of Color and Materials is part of the 2021 jury. Amy confirms: “People are increasingly aware of their impact on the planet; for what he buys, what he eats and for the way of life. Land Rover continually develops new sustainable and responsibly sourced materials such as premium leather alternatives, and recycled interior polymers. The Earth Photo contest is a powerful way to encourage debate and change and I am happy to be part of the jury. "
