The Environmental Photographer of the Year competition is a relatively new one (since 2007) but its raison d'etre is important. It was created to enable photographers to share images of environmental and social issues. With over 10,000 submissions this year, there is a clearly an interest and engagement with this subject.

This beautiful blue photo by a Viet Namese photographer shows women making fishing nets in the Mekong Delta, Viet Nam, preparing for the annual flooding of the river, when they can catch fish and shrimp.
