“A landscape image cuts across all political and national boundaries, it transcends the constraints of language and culture.”
– Charlie Waite
The landscape category documents wild places, the environment, urban landscapes and more. It can include macro photography, long exposures and other techniques and interpretations of what a landscape is.
Entrants are encouraged to submit impactful and original photography that excites and challenges the viewer as well as traditional landscapes artfully captured.
We want to see original imagery that we haven’t seen before and imagery that challenges and breaks the mold of what a landscape image is. Although we accept imagery that has been entered in other competitions we are on a mission to find original, undiscovered work we have not seen before.
HOW MUCH TO ENTER?
