My Isolation Landscape was created specially for the 2020 competition in response to the COVID-19

outbreak in the UK. Images had to be taken between March 23 - 31 May 2020, and the scope for this

special award was fairly vast. We accepted photographs that ranged from the shot of your front room,

to a view over fields from your back garden. Digital manipulation was allowed for this award to

encourage creativity. Entries were submitted via a Facebook group linked to the Landscape Photographer

of the Year page.

Silent Covid Morning by Besnik Mehmed was shot in central London during the COVD-19 pandemic. “I

had miscalculated my journey to work that day, so I went around to take a couple of images. All the

landmarks around London Bridge were empty. But it was the silence that I found most astonishing, and

this view complimented it perfectly for me”.

Commended Photographers

Simon Brown for his detailed image captured in his kitchen.
