WINNER. "As a student of architecture I'm taught a lot about large-scale sustainability. Large projects give the public the wrong idea, that individual actions are too small to make a difference. This houseboat at Felixstowe harbour highlights the every-little-helps attitude needed if we're serious about cleaning up our energy use in the UK."
WINNER. "Liverpool has a great industrial heritage. This wind farm signifies progress for an area that's fallen behind some of Europe's more environmentally forward-thinking cities and ports. There are plans for more renewable energy schemes along the Mersey catchment area - good news for the UK and the environment."
HIGHLY COMMENDED. "These dozing seals on Donna Nook beach are oblivious to the power being generated by the turbines in the distance. The gentle silhouette of the seals set in the warm orange light softens the boundaries between civilisation and the natural world.".
HIGHLY COMMENDED. "Approaching Glasgow in the early morning we flew over this wind farm. Every photographer must have a bit of luck sometimes. The window was clean, the sun behind me, the cloud was light and the plane not too high. I was meant to get this shot. Clean energy being generated in a wild, clean place."
HIGHLY COMMENDED. "Powis Castle commercial nursery may be one of the first energy self-sufficient nurseries in the UK. It's not easy working with renewables in monuments and listed buildings, but it can and should be done."
HIGHLY COMMENDED: "Across the nation drying clothes the old-fashioned way using wind and sun is far more efficient than using tumble dryers, which 81% of householders use. Clothes drying are a whole lot prettier than a power station supplying electricity for tumble dryers."
"Scroby Sands wind farm with turbine parts being loaded onto barges in Yarmouth Harbour, in the foreground. The first shift will start soon in the early morning sun, the cranes swinging blades the length of commuter trains onto the barges."
"This lone wind turbine in Mullacot, near Ilfracombe, Devon, illuminated by a stunning rainbow, may be seen as a ray of hope, a small pot of gold. We need to make the countryside productive in new ways, not just through agriculture and sheep, but through harvesting wind and solar power."
"Liverpool has a great industrial heritage. This wind farm signifies real progress for an area that has fallen behind some of Europe's more innovative, environmentally forward-thinking cities and ports. There are plans for more renewable energy schemes along the Mersey catchment area - good news for the UK and the environment."
"My brother, Gary Marsland, is spending a year travelling the canals and rivers of Britain in his small canal boat using only solar power. His target is 1000 miles. We joined him for a week in April when I took this photo of Gary with my 11 year old son, Liam."
"Great Yarmouth Pier, with its demand for energy, and Scroby Sands wind farm behind, reminds me that if we want to be having a pleasurable time in the future we need to generate our energy in a way that does not harm the planet."
"Trying to engage teenage boys can be tough and things that turn them on tend to have a negative effect on the local carbon footprint. Who would have thought my new mini wind turbine light would excite them so much. Job done!"
"What would our coastline look like if these turbines were everywhere? I zoomed in on these turbines off Walney Island so the image conveys nothing except the juxtaposition of natural and unnatural forms."
"In years gone by the horse was our source of energy which worked in harmony with nature. We have to get back to that idea of working with nature, not against it, or everything will go horribly wrong."
"Didcot power station is merrily choking the planet as it has for the past 50 years. The new houses in the foreground are fitted with solar panels providing clean and silent 21st century renewable electricity."
"I have a personal interest in rediscovering pre-war hydro installations to see if we can bring them back to life. There are hundreds out there lying dormant. The technology needs updating, but the sites are there."
"This solar farm has a low profile that integrates well with the landscape, the South Downs in the distance and the sheep! It is essential that we take advantage of a free and renewable energy source wherever it is available."
"I get sick and tired of people complaining about wind turbines. They are visionary, evolutionary and a symbol of the great strides mankind has made. The Olympic Park did an amazing job introducing British wildflowers and turbines as this picture shows."
"Eling tide mill is one of the few remaining operational flour mills in the UK. The sea has immense potential for providing renewable energy in the form of tidal power. The advantages are obvious. Mills indicate an early grasp of this valuable power source by our ancestors."
"I think this image illustrates beautifully the link between the most powerful energy source in the solar system and mankind's demand for energy. Solar energy is a potentially limitless resource which limits the effects of climate change."
"Liverpool has a great industrial heritage. This wind farm signifies real progress for an area that has fallen behind some of Europe's more innovative, environmentally forward-thinking cities and ports.There are plans for more renewable energy schemes along the Mersey catchment area - good news for the UK and the environment."
