Search is on for Landscape Photographer of the Year

By Staff Reporter

Could you be the next Landscape Photographer of the Year?

The search has started for entries for the 12th annual Landscape Photographer of the Year Award. Entrants have until July 7 to submit their photographs of the British landscape.

The awards were founded by renowned landscape photographer Charlie Waite and are open to everyone.

There is a special class for those under the age of 17, and each entrant can submit 25 photographs across four categories.

As in previous years, an exhibition of shortlisted and winning entries will premiere in the late autumn.

Previous local entries which were highly commended included Watching the Fireworks in Portstewart and Downhill at Dusk.

For Watching the Fireworks Glen Miles said: "I had positioned myself on the rocks just above the sea but decided to move up behind the group of teenagers who had gathered to watch the display. I thought that this would be a better composition as having the human element would create a sense of being there for the viewer."

For Downhill at Dusk, Paul Kileen said: "As I reached the beach I was immediately drawn into the rays of the setting sun bursting through the dark clouds in the distance and a solitary fisherman immersed in ripples in the sand with reflections from the sky above."
