Landscape Photographer of the Year Award open for entries
Photographers are being urged to enter the Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year Award which is now open for entries – with £10,000 up for grabs for the winner.
Entrants have until 15 July to enter the 2012 Award by submitting their photographs of the British landscape. The competition is open to all and entrants can enter up to 25 photographs across four categories.
The award, which was dreamt up by international landscape photographer Charlie Waite, has a total prize fund worth £20,000 on offer, including £10,000 for the overall winner.
Last year the wintry image of snow covered crop lines leading to a cluster of frosted trees won the top spot, when Scottish photographer, Robert Fulton, became the fifth person to win this prestigious title and the £10,000 prize. His picture was chosen by judges from the thousands of entries that showcased the richly diverse landscape of the UK and appears in the book that accompanies the award.
‘Take a view’ celebrates the British Isles only.
There is an Adult and a Junior title for the Award and entries are split into four categories:
· Classic view is the category for landscape photography in its purist form; sweeping views that capture the beauty and splendour of the UK in one image.
· Living the view is the category for images of people interacting with the outdoors – working or playing in the UK landscape.
· Your view allows the entrants to express what the UK landscape means to them through photography. It is a way to comment on the way we treat our landscapes and a chance to provide a new way of looking at our environment.
· Urban view is a category for pictures taken in cities and towns. With almost 80% of the UK population living in built-up areas, the landscapes that we connect with on a day-to-day basis are increasingly of an urban nature.
