The judges have made their decision and the winner of this year’s Award will be announced by the Sunday Times Magazine on the 26th October 2008.
The second year of this annual Award, to find the UK’s Landscape Photographer of the Year, again received thousands of entries highlighting the very best of our varied country.
The winning images will premier this autumn in a stunning free exhibition at London’s National Theatre from November 18th.
These pictures are not only beautiful to look at, but help to show the importance of ensuring a safe future for this precious inheritance – our landscape.
The 2008 Awards are supported by the leading tourist agencies of the UK – Enjoy England, Visit Wales, VisitScotland, VisitBritain, Britain on View, VisitGuernsey, Jersey Tourism, and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
Their support has meant that news of this year’s competition reached all corners of the nation and entries were received from places as geographically diverse as the Shetland Isles and the Isle of Wight. The final results have proved that there is certainly beauty and interest to be had wherever you travel. The competition is fast becoming an event that reflects the heart and spirit of Britain and attracts entries of the very highest standard.
A book, by AA Publishing, will feature the winning & commended entries from 2008 and this will be launched at the exhibition.
Charlie Waite, one of Britain’s best-loved landscape photographers & founder of Take a view, says: “Having seen the standard of this year’s entries at first-hand, I cannot wait to see the exhibition. The National Theatre is an amazing venue and the support we have received from Epson will help to ensure that the winning images are seen at their very best. I am very pleased that my aim, to involve as many people as possible in making and enjoying images that symbolise our land and our times, continues to be met with such enthusiasm.
