EAGE/EFG Photo Contest 2015

The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) again joined forces for the organisation of the ‘Geoscientists at work’ photo contest. The Top 12 pictures chosen through public online voting clearly reflect the diversity of the geoscientific profession: they not only cover different sectors of the profession such as natural hazards, minerals & mining or oil & gas exploitation, but they also depict the impressive and inspiring variety of geological features all around the Earth in general.

The winning pictures were displayed in a travelling exhibition visiting several geosciences events in autumn 2014.

Electronic voting for the best three photos closed on 1 September. First prize is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S, second prize is the book Earth from Space and an EAGE book­shop voucher of €100, and third prize is a copy of Earth from Space and an EAGE bookshop voucher of €50.
