Now in its fifth successful year, the Take a view – Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards is open for entries and you have until mid-July to upload your pictures for a chance to win the top prize of £10,000. Entrants have until 15th July to enter the 2011 Awards by submitting their photographs of the British landscape.
The competition is open to everyone and, for the first time this year, you can enter up to 25 photographs across the four categories. There is an exciting prize fund worth £20,000, including £10,000 for the overall winner. There is also a special class for those under 16, so the whole family can get involved.
Unlike many other photographic competitions, ‘Take a view’ celebrates the United Kingdom only, offering photographers worldwide the opportunity to showcase their images of this richly diverse and unique country.
The 2011 Awards are being held in association with Network Rail and there is a special section for photography of the British rail network – Lines in the Landscape.
All entries to the award must be uploaded via the competition website, www.take-a-view.co.uk and the closing date is 15th July 2011. Entry fees apply. Full terms and conditions can be found on the site.
An exhibition of the winning and commended entries will premiere at the National Theatre in London from 5th December 2011 and all successful entries will also appear in a stunning book by AA Publishing.
