Submission Deadline: 31 May 2015 Brighton & Hove residents are invited to submit photographs of city sustainability.

Brighton & Hove was accredited as the world’s first One Planet City in 2013.

In 2014, following an open call to emerging and established photographers, FotoDocument and partners Bioregional and Photoworks co-commissioned ten established and emerging photographers to create photo essays on each of the ten principles of One Planet Living.

One Planet City, a series of open-air exhibitions of the resulting works, launched in key public sites across the city for Brighton Photo Biennial 2014 and will remain in situ until the end of summer 2015.

Now Brighton & Hove residents are invited to submit their own photographs on the city’s sustainability for a public photography competition.

Submissions will be judges by a panel of industry professionals, winning entries will feature on the FotoDocument website and the winning entrants will receive one of ten signed photo-books plus a selection of other great prizes.

Simon Roberts, Pierdom
Melanie Friend, The Home Front
