The com­pe­ti­tion for the twelfth Take a View Land­scape Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year is now open for en­tries. Founded by renowned land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher, Char­lie Waite, the com­pe­ti­tion cel­e­brates UK land­scapes only but any­one across the globe can en­ter.

There are cat­e­gories for ur­ban views, land­scapes with peo­ple, close- up de­tails and con­cep­tual land­scapes, as well as more clas­sic views – so there is plenty of scope for your imag­i­na­tion. Key sup­porter and ex­hi­bi­tion host Net­work Rail will once again present the ‘Lines in the Land­scape’ award for the best im­age of the

con­tem­po­rary rail net­work shown within its land­scape set­ting. This evoca­tive im­age of Rib­ble­head Viaduct was ‘painted’ with light us­ing a 1500-lu­men torch and was taken by Robert France. It was highly com­mended in the Net­work Rail cat­e­gory last year and can be seen on tour at main rail sta­tions na­tion­wide un­til mid-July.

En­trants have un­til 7 July to en­ter the 2018 Awards by sub­mit­ting their pho­to­graphs of the Bri­tish land­scape. The prize fund is worth £20,000, with £10,000 for the over­all win­ner. Find out more at the web­site www.take-a-view.co.uk.
