landscape photographer of the year

The sixth annual Take a view Landscape Photographer of the year competition, with a top prize of £10,000, closes at midnight on 15 July 2012.

The competition is solely for those in the UK and each entrant can enter up to 25 photos of the UK's landscape across 4 categories:

Classic view- This 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- This is the category for images of people interacting with the outdoors – working or playing in the UK landscape.

Your view- This category allows you to express what the UK landscape means to you 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. The judges allow for a greater degree of image interpretation in this category – but the image still has to say something about the UK landscape and must ‘work’ visually.

Urban view- 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. No less beautiful than natural landscapes, we are searching for those images that highlight the photographic variety to be found in our towns, cities & villages.

There is also a separate class for those under 16, with a chance to win £1000 plus, a place on a photographic workshop.

The 2012 awards are being held in association with Network Rail and there will, for the third year, be a Special Award offered – the Network Rail ‘Lines in the Landscape Award’ for the best image of Britain’s rail network. Epson will be presenting their ‘Exceed your Vision’ award for the first time and special awards will also be offered by Calumet Photographic and The Sunday Times Magazine.

An exhibition of over one hundred winning and commended entries will be held at the National Theatre in London from 12 November 2012 and these pictures will also appear in a coffee table book: Landscape Photographer of the Year – Collection 6 by AA Publishing (available 31 October 2012).
