Royal Geographical Society honours top geographers


The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) has announced this year’s medal and awards recipients, recognising extraordinary achievement in geographical research, fieldwork, photography, teaching, and in enthusing public audiences.

This year a Dane was among the recipients. Danish photographer Jens Bjerre won the Cherry Kearton Medal and Award for “photography of indigenous peoples across the world.”
