When taking a picture of a landscape, just like in a portrait or a scene, photographers attempt to tell a story.

From dramatic rural vistas to urban panoramics, or seemingly-abstract aerial compositions, this month we want to see images that showcase our planet’s diverse and beautiful topography.⁠

All approaches are valid and we want to see as many different styles and compositions as possible!

1st Prize: $1000 · 2nd Prize: $600 · 3rd Prize: $400
