Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2014
The Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2014 is now accepting entries. How do you fancy heading off to the Arctic in spring 2015 on the adventure of a lifetime? That’s the amazing prize awaiting the overall winner of this year’s Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition.
1) Light On The Land – Under sunset’s fiery skies, in fleeting twilight, with the gentler light of the moon, or with the first rays of a new day, we are looking for stunning landscape images from anywhere in the world.
2) Wildlife Insight – There has never been a better time to be a wildlife photographer. We are looking for compelling compositions showing the spirit and behaviour of wildlife around the planet
3 ) Live the adventure – Capture adventure activities and adventure travel around the globe. From hiking and mountain biking to intriguing cultures and amazing festivals, we want to see the thrill and beauty of life lived to its maximum.
4) At the water’s edge – Lakes, rivers, waterfalls and the coast make for some of the most appealing outdoor photography subjects. We want to see inspiring images of them either in their wider environment or more intimate views.
5) Small world – Nature can be at its most amazing in the smallest forms. We want to see your macro and close-up photographs of the plants and insects all around us that often go unnoticed.
6) Under exposed – We want to celebrate the breathtaking photographic work that is going on underwater. From seas and oceans to rivers and lakes, we are looking for images that showcase the remarkable world beneath the surface.
Young oPOTY 2014 – Nature is my world: for outdoor photographers aged 18 or under, to shoot landscapes, nature or wildlife subjects that matter most to them.
