Disorder is the theme of this year's Prix Pictet Photo Competition

1 of 8

The Prix Pictet is the annual Swiss photography prize that focuses on sustainability and the environment.

Each year there is a different theme; the first was water, the second was earth, the third growth, the fourth power, the fifth consumption and this year's is disorder.

It's a wide ranging topic and the stunning photos include ivory poaching, bee colonies, war, plastic waste and asylum seekers. The 12 nominees from all over the world do not disappoint (although we would have liked a few more women contenders).
