A great opportunity for imaginative photography! Geology is all around us impacting on our daily lives. It's in our shopping baskets, our homes and our streets as well as on mountains, volcanoes, beaches and quarries.

First Prize £100, Second Prize £50, 3rd Prize £25.

Your entries will also be considered for inclusion in the 2018 GA Calendar which will be on sale at the Festival and may be published in the Geologists' Association magazine and used for publicising and promoting the work of the Association (full credit will be given).
