Now in its seventh year, the Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year Award is open for entries and you have until early July to upload your pictures for a chance to win £10,000.

Entrants have until 4th July to enter the 2013 Awards by submitting their photographs of the British landscape. The competition is open to everyone and you can enter up to 25 photographs across the four categories. There is a prize fund worth £20,000, including £10,000 for the overall winner. There is also a special class for those under 17, so the whole family can get involved.

Unlike many other photographic competitions, Take a view celebrates the United Kingdom only, offering photographers worldwide the opportunity to showcase their images of this richly diverse and unique country.

The UK’s weather has rarely been out of the news and its impact on our landscapes certainly provides inspiration for photographers; a lot of snow scene entries are expected but the onset of spring brings new chances to capture Britain’s changing seasons. With categories for urban and conceptual landscapes, as well as for more classical views, this year’s competition has plenty of scope to fire your imagination.

The Awards are being held in association with Network Rail for the fourth year and there is a prize for the best photograph of the British rail network – the ‘Lines in the Landscape’ Special Award. Tom Kelly, Network Rail’s director, corporate communications said: "This competition celebrates something very special: the way this country looks in all its different ways, some changing, some not. I am delighted that the railway, which forms such an important backdrop for both the urban and rural landscape in so many places, should be a part of it and look forward with anticipation to seeing this year’s entries."

Awards founder, Charlie Waite, said: "Photography is within and around us all and the impulse and compulsion to photograph our remarkable landscape seems to grow ever stronger. I am convinced that these individual moments of creativity help us in our everyday lives and we look forward to seeing some remarkable work, as indeed we have each year since the Awards began in 2007. The support of Network Rail continues to be invaluable and I am particularly looking forward to judging its special award – the UK’s railways are close to my heart."

All entries to the awards must be uploaded via the Take a view website, and the closing date is 4th July 2013. Entry fees apply. Full terms and conditions can be found on the site.
