From chalk cliffs to misty lochs, we share some of the most beautiful photographs from this year’s Landscape Photographer of the Year competition…
One of Britain’s most prestigious photography awards, Landscape Photographer of the Year, today reveals its 2015 winners and their breathtaking images.
Showcasing some of the most dramatic, beautiful and unusual landscapes in Britain, from the white cliffs of Dover to the Scottish Highlands, this year’s winning and commended entries are also available in coffee-table book Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 9.
The award has four categories (Classic View, Urban View, Living The View, Your View) and a Youth award, which celebrates the extraordinary talent of photographers under the age of 18. The overall winner, Dorset photographer Andy Farrer, takes away £10,000 prize money.
Landscape Photographer of the Year was set up by leading UK photographer Charlie Waite to celebrate Britain and create a positive connection between people and the landscape that surrounds them, whether it’s rolling countryside or our grittier industrial landscapes.
An exhibition of the best photos from the award, hosted by Network Rail, will run for six weeks from November 23 until February 7 at London Waterloo. The photographs will appear on display stands but will also make an appearance on Motion@Waterloo, a 40 metre-wide LCD screen, the largest single indoor screen in the UK. Admission to the exhibition is free.
Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 9 is out now (AA Publishing, £25). The Landscape Photographer of the Year awards are held in association with VisitBritain and Countryside is GREAT. For more information, see www.take-a-view.co.uk
