21st Century Fox announces winners of ‘Earth in Focus’ employee photography contest in honor of Earth Month


As part of 21st Century Fox’s commitment to minimizing our environmental impacts, growing sustainably and inspiring others to take action, we celebrated Earth Month this April by partnering with National Geographic on an exclusive photography competition, judged by a Nat Geo photo editor. The contest invited 21CF colleagues around the world to submit their best nature photography and shots of action against climate change for a chance to win a free National Geographic Expedition trip, as well as runner-up prizes of GoPro and Canon PowerShot cameras. The grand prize includes a 10-day trip for two to the Galápagos Islands and the opportunity to explore its unique wildlife aboard the National Geographic’s Endeavour II, led by a Nat Geo Expert.

21CF is excited to announce the winners of the “Earth in Focus” photo contest below. Check out all of the entries to see how our inspiring colleagues are working to protect the planet every day. Special congratulations to Eric Barnes, who will be headed to the Galápagos Islands with Nat Geo later this year.
