For the third consecutive year, Artists' Bill of Rights supporter, the International Landscape Photographer of the Year, is looking for your best work.

2014 and 2015 saw the first years of the competition, and were a great success with images entered from around the world, culminating in stunning collections of the top 101 images for each year. The collections were published in beautiful coffee table books by Momento Pro.

In this third year of the competition, ILPOTY is again very pleased to have the depth and judging experience of five of the world’s best photographers and industry professionals.

  • David Burnett, co-founder Contact Press Images, USA
  • Tim Parkin, ON LANDSCAPE Magazine Editor
  • Luke Austin, 2015 International Landscape Photographer of the Year -Kaye Davis, NZIPP Grand Master of Photography
  • Jim Goldstein, Fine Art Photographer and Author, USA

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 approximately the past year (images must be captured after January 1st, 2015) 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 SQUARIAL (square aerial) Award
