Urban Treasures – European Environment Agency Photo Competition 2024

Application Deadline: 1 October 2024 23.59 (CEST)

Applications are now open for the 2024 European Environment Agency Photo Competition. Calling all nature and photography enthusiasts! The European Environment Agency (EEA) invites you to showcase your photographic talent in the 2024 edition of the annual photo competition.

This year’s competition “Urban Treasures” is a call for us to capture the essence of our cities and towns through inspiring moments that give us joy and hope for a more sustainable tomorrow. The urban theme celebrates the positive strides we are making towards a better environment and encourages a reflection on how we can build more eco-friendly and liveable neighbourhoods.


Showcase your creativity as a photographer under these thematic categories:

– Wildlife in the city

– Charming Neighbourhoods

– Green at heart

Selection process

20-40 finalists and 5 winners

  • The best photographs in each category will be selected by a pre-selection committee consisting of communication and environment experts appointed by the EEA. 
  • Finalist photos will then be submitted to an external jury composed of environmental communication experts from across Europe. The jury will determine the winners of all prizes except for the Public Choice Award.
  • For the Public Choice Award, the finalist entries put forward by the pre-selection committee will be open to a public vote from 30 October to 13 November 2024.
  • The winners of all prizes will be announced on 29 November 2024.
