Amateur and professional photographers have until 10 July to enter the £20,000 contest, founded by landscape photographer Charlie Waite who said: ‘When we started the awards back in 2006, we hoped to provide a platform for landscape photographers that would also show the world what a wonderful place Great Britain is to live in, to visit and explore.’
Photographers can enter up to 25 photos across four categories: Classic view, Living the View, Your View, and Urban View.
It costs £10 to enter a single image; £25 for up to seven; £30 for up to 15; and £35 for up to 25 photos.
In a statement, organisers added: ‘The UK’s landscapes are both varied and fascinating; providing a wealth of opportunities for photographer and traveller alike.
‘From the white sands of the Western Isles and the mountain ridges of Snowdonia to the Broads of Norfolk and the coves of Cornwall, exploration leads to great rewards.’
An exhibition of the best entries is due to take place in November.
