Judging Process

The 2016 Book - Downloadable too!

This is certainly a book worth looking at and appreciating. Inside its pages are 101 simply amazing landscape photographs, plus a selection from our judging panel as well. There seems little doubt that international landscape photography in 2016 was alive and well.

And don't forget! If you're not represented in this year's book, there's always the 2017 competition to consider!


The International Landscape Photograph of the Year 2015, The Mist and Fog Award
Gunar Streu, Sweden

Scores For Every Entry - Out of 500

Unlike other photography competitions which we’re involved with, entrants to the International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards will receive a score out of 500. Each judge has 100 points to deliver, so the highest (and we admit, unlikely) score is 500/500.
You are able to enter more than one photograph of the same subject, so in this way you can get feedback from the judges as to which version they like the best. However, please be aware that to be eligible for the International Landscape Photographer of the Year award, which is based on your top four images, if two or more of the images are too similar, the judges at their discretion may remove one or more of them. Similarly, we want 101 different landscape photographs in the book, so while you’re entitled to enter similar images, only one may be selected.
