Take a View
Light and Land Landscape Photographer of the Year
Press release:
The launch of the first ever Landscape Photographer of the Year competition took place on the 14th November 2006. Backed by The Automobile Association (The AA), Take a view is the brainchild of renowned landscape photographer Charlie Waite and offers a total prize fund of £20,000, including £10,000 for the overall winner. A six-week exhibition on London’s South Bank will allow many entrants to see their work on public display and a full-colour book of the winning entries will be available from AA Publishing.

Britain’s heritage is celebrated by people around the world and entries are welcome from everyone, whether resident in Britain or simply visiting. Set to become a major annual event, the competition offers various categories for both adults and children, allowing for a wide variety of styles and subjects as long as the images are of the British Isles. Entries will be judged by a celebrity panel from the photographic and film industries.

Charlie Waite says of Take a View, “The rich diversity of the British landscape issomething that is available to all of us and is ours to enjoy. This competition will provide an on-going platform for capturing images that best symbolise our land and our times, and that will stand as a record of our country.”

The book of winning entries will be launched by AA Publishing at the opening of the Take a View exhibition, in the superb surroundings of the National Theatre on London’s South Bank. Supported by the Sunday Times Magazine, this competition is destined to become an annual event that will reflect the heart and spirit of Britain. All entries must be uploaded via the competition website, www.take-a-view.co.uk and the closing date is 31st May 2007. Full terms and conditions can be found on the site.

Too many good 'Landscapers' out there...

'-)

I don't enter a lot of competitions - it just seems a cheek to ask a fee to enter and then lose all control of the image if it places.

If you win, charge them huge expenses for appearing at their publicity meets. They'll get the message.

Agreed Keith, but I used the word 'place'. Third place only gets £500.

Not sure about that. You grant 'Take a view and supporting partners' free use of the image, but I cannot see that you are giving 'Take a view' permission to sell the image to 3rd parties.
'Take a view' are not demarding exclusivity either.

You are only sending them an 800 pixel image anyway.

and there are those to whom the word 'only' and the figure of £500 are not automatic associates.

All of the major comps, BBC Wildlife etc, require images taken on 6mp+ cameras. The SD9/10 are quite capable of producing prints larger and better than any 6mp camera, yet are excluded from these competitions due to having 'only' 3.4 mp sensors.
The bl$$dy maketeers have even got to the competition organisers!!

Using your skill and judgement, try and spot the person with Sigma SD9!
