About Prince Albert II of Monaco Environmental Photography Award 2024

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s Environmental Photography Award was launched in 2021, in honour of the Foundation’s 15th anniversary. This annual award was created with the aim of rewarding photographers who put their creativity to good use in raising awareness on Earth protection. It has the dual purpose of celebrating the incredible beauty of our planet and highlighting the environmental challenges we face through five categories: Polar Wonders, Into the Forest, Ocean Worlds, Humanity versus Nature, Change Makers: Reasons for Hope.

Photographic art, with its immediate and universal language, represents a formidable vehicle for raising awareness. It reinforces, in a virtuous way, the process of awareness on major environmental issues, such as biodiversity, climate and the ocean.

Program Details

Environmental photographers can encourage us to change, to innovate, to invent sustainable solutions in order to better rethink our lives and our economies. They reveal a real “field of possibilities” for new generations who aspire to a more harmonious relationship with Nature.

The photographs – almost 10,000 images that participated in the 3rd edition of the competition in 2023 – are carefully selected by a jury of internationally renowned professional photographers for their technical and aesthetic excellence but also, above all, for the relevance and strength of their message.

The 5 categories

  • Polar Wonders

Images depicting landscapes, wildlife and local communities in the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions.

  • Ocean Worlds

Images that illustrate the richness of our seas and oceans, whether on or under the surface, and showcase the diversity of marine wildlife.

  • Into the forest

Images that highlight the beauty of the flora and fauna that make up the forest ecosystem and the lives of native communities in the boreal, temperate and tropical forests.

  • Humanity Versus Nature

Images that depict the conflicting relationship between humans and nature and the negative impact of human activities on the environment: issues related to the consequences of climate change (droughts, wildfires, extreme climate events…), the loss of biodiversity (endangered species, disastrous interactions between humans and wildlife…), as well as the depletion of the world’s water resources.

  • Change Makers: Reasons for Hope

Images that highlight the efforts and actions implemented globally by communities and organisations that help build a more sustainable world and more harmonious relationship between man and nature. It aims to demonstrate hope for Humanity and for the Planet.
