'Landscape Photographer of the Year' 2012

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 1 November 2012 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

I entered the 'Take A View' Landscape Photographer of the Year competition for the first time this year. It's the biggest landscape photography competition here in the UK and so I was really delighted to get an email last week letting me know that the three photos you can see above all got commended by the judges - all 3 will appear in the Award book and the colour photo will be shown as a print at the National Theatre exhibition in London with the other two projected as part of the slideshow presentation.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Many congratulations Ian, but how the hell did they not pick you as the overall winner??
Must be damned difficult to be a judge for these competitions, and also damned difficult to sit down, look at your own work, and try to make a reasoned decision about which shots to enter.
Always loved your shots of cooling towers, mind.

I wonder WHY you DID NOT submit your photos in previous years, too?! It's quite normal that you've been chosen and in my opinion (of two cents) you should have gotten the Big Prize! CONGRATULATIONS!
