Making the Headlines: Landscape Photographer of the Year
This year’s Landscape Photographer of the Year awards were held on Monday 23 November at London Waterloo, after the competition results were announced in late October. One of Britain’s most prestigious photography awards, the competition showcases Britain’s most dramatic, beautiful and unusual landscapes.
The award event offered winning photographers and press the chance to be at the opening night of the exhibition, held on the busy station mezzanine. It will run until 7 February.
Midas worked with AA Publishing to announce the winners to the press and to promote the hardback book that contains all the winning entries from the award, Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 9. On top of being included in the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail’s Xmas books round-ups and showcased in The Sunday Times coveted ‘Spectrum’ photo spread, the book was featured in over thirty glossy magazines, from Geographical’s cover story to BBC Countryfile, and from Outdoor Fitness to Country and Town House. The awards were covered by all specialist photography press and a range of lifestyle, arts and news websites, including AOL, Culture 24, Discover Britain and Conde Nast Traveller.
Midas worked with head judge and award founder, leading landscape photographer Charlie Waite to set up a string of radio interviews promoting the award and landscape photography. Charlie wrote first person pieces for a range of magazines including Saga, on top a double page spread in the Daily Telegraph on how best to photograph autumn landscapes.
