World’s best photographers come together again for this year’s International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015 award. This is the second edition of the competition launched in 2014 by Peter Eastway, Nathan Oxley and David Evans, with total cash prizes of $10,000 and trophy awards.

The competition will decide the best landscape photographer, as well as the best landscape photography of 2015. Also, there will be several other prizes: The Mist & Fog Award, The Long Exposure Award, The Aerial Award, The Abstract Award and The Snow & Ice Award. The contest is open to anyone. To be eligible for The International Landscape Photographer of the Year award, contestants must enter at least 4 photographs.

The high quality level of the 2014 entries – which can be seen in the free e-book – made the judging process difficult and thorough, setting a high bar for the 2015 edition. The majority of the 2014 contestants were from Australia and New Zealand, where the competition is based, so the stakes are even higher, as the aim is to internationally broaden the entrant base.

Keeping with last year’s edition, the best 101 photographs will be selected and published in a coffee table book by Momento Pro – a sponsor of the competition, along with Created For Life.

Entries are open until May 15th. More details regarding the competition can be found here.
