The International Landscape Photographer of the Year wishes to celebrate the art and craft of landscape photography! They do this by collecting 101 of the best landscape photographs into a book – printed by Momento Pro, as well as rewarding the 'best' single photographs, and the 'best' portfolios of four photographs.

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

A new sponsor, Epson Australia, has been added for this year's competition!

Competition chairman Peter Eastway says:

“The International Landscape Photographer of the Year Award has matured with a look and a style that has been guided in part by our judges, and in part by the entrants. There's no doubt that our judges have strongly held views on what makes great photography, but equally we've invited judges who have a broad appreciation of photography. This cornucopia of ideas curates our wonderfully diverse collection of the top 101 landscape photographs, but it also makes choosing the best three photographers and the best three photographs very challenging.”

The competition is open to all photographers with the aim of again finding the best 101 landscape images from approximately the past 2 years 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.
