The Romantic Landscape is now calling on photographers to submit images for consideration in a juried book competition.
Romanticism has long been associated with the Landscape. In photography, the romantic nature of the landscape often features its spirit in full bloom. It is typically very hard to categorise. At times its very nature is uncontrollable, and often unpredictable, while at other times, it possesses a quiet and sensual power that manifests its nature in stunningly beautiful vistas. Sometimes the romantic landscape may feature people or animals in the landscape, while at other times, its landscape will be desolate and bereft of life. The most notable feature of the romantic landscape photograph is that it will inspire imaginations, and stir strong feelings in its audience. Photographers are being asked to create single images that engage with the romantic nature of the landscape that surrounds us. This award is open to professional, emerging and student photographers.
