LANDSCAPE Awards March 2017


Finalists

“To the complaint ‘There are no people in these photographs’, I respond – There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.” – Ansel Adams

“Each of these photographs gives a unique and personal approach to our land – Be it the pink sea of the Regional Nature Park of the Camargue in the south of France, the misty Indonesian valleys of East Java or the aerial view of Western Sahara. These photographs celebrates all the majesty and diversity of the earth. They offer their very own story and sensibility – Congratulations to all. Outstanding work!”The Independent Photographer Editors

– The Theme: Landscape Photography

Landscape photography is one of the oldest form of photography and can offer the viewer feelings of hope, isolation or peace. Both reflecting the identity of the photographer and the spirit of the land. From compelling urban scenes to minimalist and undeniable pull towards the earth, we wanted to see YOUR relation to the land!

– The Judge: Cody Cobb

LANDSCAPE Deadline: 30 April 2020

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

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