Photographers are being urged to record the UK’s changing vistas for the 10th annual Landscape Photographer of the Year award.
In previous years, winning and highly commended images – which are submitted in categories ranging from classic to urban views and those involving people – have included lavender fields, rolling English hills, a tangle of tree roots and dramatic beach shots.
The competition’s founder, photographer Charlie Waite, said he had hoped to establish “a wonderful, visual record of our times” with the awards, with images reflecting seasonal, man-made or climate-related changes to landscapes across the UK.
He said: “I believe that landscape photography is good for us. It enhances our visual awareness of the world around us.
“A landscape image can cut across most political and national boundaries and transcend the constraints of language and culture.”
And he said: “Even landscapes that are familiar to us are never static and the photographs in the competition reflect those changes whether they be seasonal, climate-related or man-made.”
The overall winner of the competition will scoop a £10,000 prize, while there are also prizes for category winners and under-17s. People have until July 10 to enter their images.
