3. USA Landscape Photographer of the Year
The search is on to document America’s most exciting views. The USA Landscape Photographer of the Year awards follow on from the huge success of the UK competition, and were set up by Charlie Waite to celebrate the scenery of the stars and stripes in all its forms. There are five main categories you can enter your shots into: Classic View, My USA, Black & White, Urban, and Environmental Value.
Photo editing is allowed, but physical changes to the landscape aren’t permitted – so no cloning out trees or fences to make the shot look better! The good news is that you don’t have to live in the USA to enter – only to take the shots on American soil – and the photos you submit to the contest can be up to five years old.
The prize fund is worth over $45,000 (£36,000), so check the website for hints and tips, and be sure to enter if you have the chance.
Winner's tip: Alex Noriega, 2016
“Enter your most unique compositions. Light and conditions are important, but even the best possible image of Tunnel View or Mesa Arch is going to be overlooked by judges who have seen it hundreds of times before. Images that are completely unique to you will stand out.”
The grand winner of this year’s contest receives $15,000 (£12,000). There’s $1,000 (£800) for the best in each adult category.
Entry Date: 1st June 2017
Closing date: 1st September 2017
Entry fee: $10 (£8) for a single entry, $45 (£36) for up to 20 images
