Take A View Landscape Photographer of the Year 2020 Awards
I was delighted to recieve an email on Tuesday afternoon advising me I have an image shortlisted in the Take A View Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards 2020. If you are unaware of the competion, it was establised in 2006 by Landscape Photographer Charlie Waite. It is entered by professional and ametuer landscape photographers alike and is probably the biggest and most high profile competition in the UK of its kind. It has been rumoured that there was around 30,000 entries this year, so to get an image through to the next round is certainly an achievement in itself. The prize fund is around £20k and if you are lucky enough to have an image commended then you will be in the annual book, which will be on general sale and also be part of the exhibition which will be held in London. Will I go any further? Who knows and judging by the quality of the entrants who have also got images short listed, its going to be a tall order but its been fantastic to recieve this news and it really has given me a lift after the troubling times we have all been living with recently. I've put a link below for the website if you are interested at looking at what its all about.
