Competition summary:

Take a view is an annual competition to find the Landscape Photographer of the Year and was the idea of Charlie Waite, one of today's most respected landscape photographers. Now in its twelfth year, the competition has a total prize fund worth £20,000, a full colour book of best entries by AA Publishing and a popular annual exhibition in Central London. Entries must be of the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man but you do not need to be a UK resident to enter. The overall adult winner receives £10,000 and there is also an award for the Young Landscape Photographer of the Year. There are four different categories and up to 25 images can be entered across these categories, with entry fees ranging from £10 to £35, depending on the number of images entered. The competition is open to all photographers - be they just starting out, enthusiasts or professionals. All entries must be made via the website, where you can find full information. Closing date: 7th July 2018

Category details:

1) Classic View is the category for landscape photography in its purist form: sweeping images that capture the beauty and variety of the UK in one image.

2) Living the View is the category for images of people interacting with the outdoors - working or playing in the landscape.

3) Urban View is the category that especially highlights the surroundings that many of us live in every day: towns and cities. With more than 80% of the UK population living in built up areas, many of the landscapes that we interact with are inevitably of an urban nature.

4) Your View allows participants to express with an image what the UK landscape means to them. It is a way to comment on the way we treat our landscapes and a chance to provide a new way of looking at our environment.
