The awards are open to all photographers; UK and international.

Entries are open from 6 January - 5 May 2022.

All entries must be submitted through our submission portal.

There are four Categories and four Special Awards to enter, and you can submit the same image in multiple categories.

Read more about this year's Categories and Special Awards.

Basic Image Requirements:

Entries must have been taken in the UK since 5 May 2017.

You can enter images taken on digital cameras or camera phones, so make sure your camera is on the highest setting when photographing. We also welcome scans from negatives or transparencies.

Digital Adjustments:

The awards aim to celebrate the very best of landscape photography. We want to allow those viewing the winning images to share the experiences that you felt when you were photographing them.

In all but one of the categories (Your View), the integrity of the subject must be maintained, so the making of physical changes to the landscape is not permitted.

In Your View we encourage creativity and digital manipulation. Use your imagination, and show us what the UK landscape means to you.

For more on digital adjustments, see the Competition Rules.


If you’re 18 or under on the 5 May 2022, you can enter the Youth Competition for FREE in 2022! More information.
