The British Automobile Association together with the UK’s Sunday Times are together sponsoring a contest to find the Landscape Photographer of the Year, 2007.
And the deadline expires at the end of May.
Entry is open to anyone, whether resident in the UK or not, but all images must have been taken in the United Kingdom after January 1st, 2000. Prizes include £10,000 (around $20,000) and of course, a nice title to include on your resume.
The competition is divided into four categories: Classic View (a traditional landscape shot); Living The View (people in the landscape); Your View (a personal take on the British landscape that allows for a little more creativity); and Phone View (shots taken on a camera phone — really!)
The site also offers a long list of hints and tips, most of which are fairly straightforward. (You’re advised to use a tripod for long exposures, for example). But one tip stresses simplicity and small details. Is that a clue to what the judges are looking for?
If you’ve been to the UK in the last few years, there’s only one way to find out. With entry fees as low as £7 (about $14) per picture, it’s worth a shot.
