Geosites Photography Competition winners announced

By Jack Bell | 09 October 2015

After months in the waiting and a huge number of applicants, the winners of The 100 Great Geosites photography competition have been officially announced

The Geological Society of London, who created the competition, asked for photographs based in any of the 100 sites listed, including coastlines, areas of natural beauty, museums and many more.

All of the winners' photographs will feature in the 2016 100 Great Geosites calendar and the top three images will be announced on October 12, for the launch of Earth Science Week.
