Emmanuel Coupe wins Landscape Photographer of the Year Award

The Landscape Photographer of the Year 2009 has been announced as Parisian-born, Emmanuel Coupe. Coupe’s stunning photograph of the Isle of Skye has taken the top prize in this year’s award and he receives the £10,000 prize. The picture was chosen by the judges from the thousands of entries that showcased the richly diverse landscape of the UK.

The top 170 images chosen by the judges, including the winning image, are included in Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 03 (AA Publishing) – a stunning photographic book containing beautiful full colour reprints of the winning and commended entries from the Take a view Landscape Photographer of the Year Award 2009

Both the book and the award celebrate the landscapes of the United Kingdom, showcasing our spectacular country through the eyes of the world’s best photographers. From salt marshes, chalk cliffs and ancient woodland, to historic villages, parklands and cityscapes, the Award aims to highlight the positive interaction between people and places.

The book, published by AA, is available in bookshops from the 31st October and will be on sale at the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2009 exhibition, which takes place at the National Theatre on London’s South Bank from 5th December – 24th January.
