Landscape Photographer of the Year 2010 / Winner Announced

The winner of 2010 Landscape Photographer of the Year has been announced. The subtle colours of a frosty morning at Corfe Castle has won Dorset photographer, Antony Spencer, the title ‘Landscape Photographer of the Year 2010’ making him the fourth person to win this prestigious title and the £10,000 prize. His picture was chosen by the judges, from the thousands of entries that showcased the richly diverse landscape of the UK.

All of the winning images from the award will be published in a stunning coffee table book containing beautiful full colour reprints of the winning and commended entries from the Take a view – Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards 2010.  The book titled Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 4 (AA publishing £25) showcases our richly diverse 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 awards aim to highlight the positive interaction between people and places that is so important for us all.

The Landscape Photographer of the Year Award is the brainchild of the UK’s most famous landscape photographer Charlie Waite. Charlie set up the awards to provide “an on-going platform for capturing images that best symbolise our land and our times, and that will stand as a record of our country.”

A free exhibition of the winning and commended entries will be held, over a seven-week period, at the National Theatre in London from the 22nd November 2010 to the 6th January 2011. The winning photographer, Anthony Spencer, is available for interview, while the book which is published next month is available for review.
