3 shortlisted for me this year, certainly not the ones I would have chosen so i'm not holding out too much confidence tbh.
I won the Calumet 'This is Britain' award in the competition last year so I think it will be impossible to match that success this year.
Good luck to everyone!
1 for me, first time I've reached the shortlisted stage.
good luck to all fellow epzr's
Quite a number shortlisted here then . Well done guys...fingers and toes crossed.
Just 1 for me this year. 3rd time shortlisted, hope this is my lucky year.
One for me, too.
Good luck all!
Some truly inspiring Landscape photos there everyone and well done , shame i cant say i feel the same about the commercial, money making so called competition that it is ..... bout time this sort of thing was clamped down on
Three for me this year. Fourth time shortlisted but have only made the book once before with a mono shot of Three Cliffs Bay. Not the three I would have chosen from my submission but I'm chuffed to be considered.
One for me this year too. Second time shortlisted.
Like Alun says, I'm delighted to be considered.
I read the discussion and I wanted to focus on another point. Most of you said that the pictures have been shortlisted are not "your best". I've to agree with you, but I'm not surprised as the first round judging has been run by a NON landscape photographers team of judges (somebody is not even a photographer...), which is not a very good point to me. The risk is to miss some "important" shoots. Anyway. Good luck all!
Quote: NON landscape photographers team of judges (somebody is not even a photographer...),
Not a bad thing - the images that appeal to photographers very often leave the general public feeling ambivalent, if not decidely cold.
I agree. Too many photography judges get too wrapped up in technicalities (and some can be so far up their own backsides on 'artistic merit') but non-photographerstend to take a photo at face value and will simply judge it on what they see and feel.
Try to imagine yourself (as a landscape photographer) in front of a portrait. I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to point it out a curious side of competitions. Emotion and feeling are part of photography.
Problem with the way they are doing is the inconsistency.
The final round judges might adore those kicked out by the first round non landscape photographers judges.
If Pete could judge all the photos uploaded here, I am sure Charlie can too with so much monies pouring in from the entrance fees.....LOL
Most film critics are not producers or actors, same with art critics.
You do not need to be a photographer to judge a photograph or to know if you felt any emotion.
