Submissions for the 13th Landscape Photographer Of The Year Awards are now open at until the 5 April 2020.

Entry for the 13th Landscape Photographer of the Year competition is now open and entrants have until 5th April 2020 to submit their photographs of the British landscape. Landscape Photographer of the Year is one of the world’s most exciting photography awards, founded by renowned landscape photographer, Charlie Waite. The competition is open to everyone, with a special class for those younger than 18. There is a prize fund worth over £20,000, including £10,000 for the overall winner and additional special awards
As in previous years, an exhibition of shortlisted and winning entries will premiere in London in the summer. Previous locations for the annual showcase have included the National Theatre and London Waterloo Station. Shortlisted entrants will also be published in stunning coffee-table book Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 13, published by The AA on the 20th July 2020, and described by The Times as a ‘coffee-table staple’.

The 2020 awards see some exciting additions to the competition. There is the introduction of a new Black and White category alongside popular categories Classic View, Urban Life and Your View.

Network Rail will once again be our exhibition partners, we’re delighted that their Special Award Lines on the Landscape will also be returning. In addition to this special award, we have three new special awards in association with our partners:

- Changing Landscapes in association with MPB, this looks at environmental issues facing the
British landscape today.

- Landscapes at Night in association with Light and Land, this considers all forms of night
photography including Astrophotography, street and city photography at night etc.

- Historic Britain in association with The Sunday Times Magazine. Due to the Sunday Times
approaching its 100th birthday in 2021, we felt an award which highlights elements of the
UK’s rich history which still appears in the landscape today would be perfect.

There are exciting changes to the Young Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards with a view to engaging more young people to get out and photograph. A new portfolio category, Living Britain, has been introduced, plus from 2020 all youth entrants will receive a bundle of 5 free images that they can enter into the competition.

All entries to the awards must be uploaded via the competition website, and the closing date is 5th April 2020. Entry fees apply. Full terms and conditions can be found on the site.
