We love putting the International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards together. And after the judging has finished, we like nothing more than to scroll through not only the winning photographs, but all of them. We're constantly amazed at the lengths photographers go to, whether physically in the landscape or creatively in post-production.

The judges are equally enthusiastic. We intentionally keep the core of our judging panel constant from year to year because we believe this gives our regular entrants a better experience, allowing them to gauge their progress.

One of our judges, David Burnett always reflects at the end of the judging with a little note. Wrote David this year:

"When judging photographs, we always run a difficult knife edge between simplicity and complexity, but more than anything this year, the pictures seemed to reflect a very intense personal response by the photographers to their subject and its treatment. As judges, we all have our favourites which in the end others might not appreciate as much as we do, so I think it is important to say that even if your picture didn’t score an 84 or higher, any picture you have taken the trouble to enter obviously has great personal meaning, so no matter the score, why not treat yourself to printing a large, decorative size print and hang it somewhere you can see and share it every day?

"The bottom line is that no one can appreciate your work as much as you and those close to you, so celebrate the images that you love. Make a print!

"It’s been a pleasure to immerse myself in these pictures and it's a constant reminder what kind of dedication our entrants bring to the act of photographing. The wet, the cold and long strenuous hikes to find a perfect location - all this is buried inside the heart of these pictures. My admiration for my fellow photographers only grows each year I help judge these awards."

I think David has elegantly expressed what we all see and feel. Thank you to our judging team: David Burnett, Jim M. Goldstein, Kaye Davis, Tim Parkin and last year's winner, Aytek Çetin.

International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards


(The above graph has been updated with the correct scoring ranges, which indicate the bottom of the range, not the top as in the earlier graph emailed to entrants.)

In this our ninth year, we received 3813 entries and the threshold for inclusion in the book (a Top 101 entry) was a score of 84.2%. However, between 82.8% and 84% there were at least another 101 entries that would comfortably sit alongside as equals - so we have added a link to our website to recognise a further 101 amazing landscape photographs (the Top 202+). So congratulations to the Top 101 – and to the next 100 or so entries whose work is also exceptional. You can see the top 202+ entries by clicking through the Archive link above.

There is US $10,000 in cash prizes for the best Photograph of the Year (single shot, 1st, 2nd, 3rd) and best Photographer of the Year (portfolio of four photographs, 1st, 2nd, 3rd), and there are five special subject awards which receive a one metre print from the high-end photo lab and framer, Created For Life. All 11 winners receive a physical copy of the annual Awards book, proudly printed by Momento Pro. We’d also like to thank NiSi Filters once again as a sponsor, providing some of their wonderful filters and tripods as prizes.

The 2022 winners are:

Photographer of the Year: Benjamin Briones Grandi, Chile
Second Place: Tony Wang, China
Third Place: Max Rive, Netherlands

Photograph of the Year: Martin Broen, USA
Second Place: Mitja Kobal, Austria

EVERYONE SHOOTS GOOD PHOTOS, BUT HOW ABOUT FOUR OF THEM?

INTERNATIONAL LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER

OF THE YEAR

It takes a practised eye and skill in post-production to consistently produce good work. And while in no way demeaning the achievement of capturing the overall International Landscape Photograph of the Year, let’s take a closer look at who is creating the best body of work. The International Landscape PhotographER of the Year, whether an enthusiast or a professional entrant, recognises the skill and discipline to create a portfolio of images that stands above the work of your peers.

THERE ARE 101 LANDSCAPE IMAGES IN THE BOOK, BUT ONLY ONE

INTERNATIONAL LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPH

OF THE YEAR

Competitions are not perfect and with so many great landscape photographs (101 to be exact), being the overall winner, the top dog, the big prize winner, is going to need a little bit of luck. Nevertheless, that shouldn’t stop us from aspiring to be chosen by our panel of esteemed judges as the best of the best, the single most impressive landscape photograph of the past 12 months. Open to both amateurs and professionals!
