Artists Bill of Rights is pleased to announce the open call for the 2nd International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015. ILPOTY attracts a high caliber of entrants and their terms and conditions are some of the best we've seen.
2014 saw the first year of the competition, and was a great success with 2233 images entered from around the world, culminating in a stunning first collection of the top 101 images. The collection was published in a beautiful coffee table book by Momento Pro.
In this second year of the competition, we are again very pleased to have the depth and judging experience of five of the world’s best photographers, including the overall winner of the 2014 International Landscape Photographer of the Year, Christian Fletcher.
-David Burnett, co-founder Contact Press Images, USA
-Tony Hewitt, 2013 Australian Professional Photographer of the Year
-Jackie Ranken, 2012 New Zealand Professional Photographer of the Year, New Zealand
-Jim Goldstein, Fine Art Photographer and Author, USA
-Christian Fletcher, 2014 International Landscape Photographer of the Year
In choosing such a high calibre of judges, the competition aims to set the gold standard and become the best landscape photography competition in the world by attracting the most exceptional images being created globally, each year.
The competition is open to all photographers with the aim of again finding the best 101 landscape images from the past 12 months and publishing them in a beautiful coffee table book which will be available in a variety of formats, including a free e-book.
The judges will also be on a search for the International Landscape Photographer of the Year (based on a folio submission of at least 4 images) and the International Landscape Photograph of the Year.
Each entry will be scored by all judges on the panel and receive a score out of 500. Prizes on offer include US$10,000 cash, trophies, limited-edition copies of the awards book and large framed prints of winning images. There are also some special awards to keep things interesting, which will change from year- to-year. This year the special awards are;
The MIST & FOG Award
The LONG EXPOSURE Award
The AERIAL Award
The ABSTRACT Award
The SNOW & ICE Award
