The exhibition, at Somerset House, London, will exhibit work based around the theme of 'Grow-Conserve', including images submitted by six shortlisted photographers who are in the running to scoop prizes valued between $2,000 and $25,000. The winners of the 2016-2017 competition will be announced on 8 March at an award ceremony, also at Somerset House.

The exhibition will explore various issues, including the challenge of food security as the global population continues to grow; conflict, climate change and sustainability. The exhibition questions whether or not it is realistically possible to do more with less, in order to conserve what we have today for the next generation.
