Entries are now open for the 2nd International Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.
The competition is open to all photographers with the aim of again finding the best 101 landscape images from the past 12 months, which will go on to be published in a coffee table book by Momento Pro. Those with a coffee table tablet will also be able to download a free e-book, and a variety of different formats will also be available.
The competitions first year drew 2233 images from around the world, with the majority of submissions from Australians. Christian Fletcher took out the top prize, and will sit this year out to judge the competition.
Other judges include David Burnett, co-founder of Contact Press Images; Tony Hewitt, 2013 AIPP Australian Professional Photographer of the Year; Jackie Ranken, 2012 NZIPP Professional Photographer of the Year; and Jim Goldstein, Fine Art Photographer and Author.
There is two main awards – the International Landscape Photographer of the Year, which is judged on a folio submission of at least four images, and the International Landscape Photograph of the Year, judged on a single image.
There is also five ‘Special Awards’: The Mist and Fog Award, The Long Exposure Aware, The Aerial Award, The Abstract Award, and The Snow & Ice Award.
Each entry is scored by all judges on the panel with a $10,000 cash prize awarded to the Photographer of the Year, and some other goodies are up for grabs.
The entry fee is US$25 per image for the first three entries. Four entries is US$80, and then additional entries are US$20 each.
Entries are to be entered digitally, with RGB colour space, 8-bit; measure between 4000 and 5000 pixels on the longest side; and be saved as a JPEG at a setting of 8 or higher.
Competition closes May 15.
