EAGE/EFG Photo Contest for National Associate Members

The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and European Federation of Geologists (EFG) have decided to conduct a Photo Contest for all those people who are members of EAGE/EFG and the associations who are connected with them. People who are passionate about photography can enter the photo contest. As this year’s theme has decided as “Legends of Geo science,” all the photographers have to picture the legends who are working for Geo science in different fields such as Atmospheric Science, Climatology, Environmental Science, etc. including all the research of Earth science such as oceans, atmosphere, rivers and lakes, and so on. The legends can be some individual men and women, role models or everyday scientists, role/professionals working for the betterment of science and society, mainly featuring women in Geoscience and young professionals. 

The three best-featuring photographers will be selected as the grand winner and receive some grand prizes. This will be decided on the public votes, and the most voted photographs will be displayed at the 83rd EAGE Annual Conference & Exhibition, conducted from 6 to June 9 in Madrid. Also, all the participants who will submit the photographs will be further featured on EFG’s social media and in Story Map. This contest will motivate the photographers to showcase their photography skills and also will get to earn exciting prizes.

The EAGE was founded in 1951 and is an association of Geo scientists and Engineers that provides a global network of commercial and academic professionals. This Association aims to encourage the development and application of Geosciences and associate engineering subjects to promote innovation and technical progress and advance the communication, fellowship, and cooperation among those working in, studying, or otherwise interested in these fields.
