Deadline: 1 September 2021. Welcome to the first Natural Landscape Photography Awards, a competition created to find the very best landscape photography of the natural world. This is a competition for digital and film photographers who value realism in their images and edit with this in mind. As a result we have a few more rules (eek!) than other competitions but we hope the result will be a fantastic showcase of not only photographer’s talents, but also the true wonder of the landscape.
We have a range of categories to suit the huge variety of modern approaches to landscape photography from grand scenics, to intimate abstracts. There is a top prize of US $5000 and many other prizes for category winners and runners-up.
Natural Landscape Photographer of the Year
The Natural Landscape Photographer of the Year is awarded to the photographer with the best collection of 6 images. In contrast to the Project Award, below, these images do not need to relate to one another and might display a variety of content, techniques and approaches. You will automatically be considered for the award if you enter 6 or more images in any category except Project Award entries, which are excluded. The winner and runner up will be precluded from winning other prizes.
First Place: Cash Prize of US $5,000 and a Shimoda Designs Action X Starter Kit.
Second Place: Cash Prize of US $1,000.
Natural Landscape Photograph of the Year
Awarded to the single best image entered into the competition, in any category. Winning this award precludes winning any of the category prizes.
Cash Prize of US $1,000 and a Shimoda Designs Action X Starter Kit.
Youth Photographer of the Year
Awarded to the single best image entered into the competition by a photographer 17 years old or younger. All youth photographers entering the competition are fully eligible for the other categories, they are full entrants and receive no special treatment other than the ability to enter at a significantly discounted rate. Winning the overall Youth Photographer of the Year precludes you from winning other categories.
Cash Prize of US $500 and a Shimoda Designs Action X Starter Kit.
