From deserted beaches, remote mountains and windswept trees to major cities and industrial works, the ‘Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards’ highlight the interaction between people and places that is so important for us all.
Charlie Waite, one of Britain’s best-loved landscape photographers and founder of Take a view, set up the Awards to provide an ongoing platform for capturing images that best symbolise our land and our times, which will stand as a record for the future. The many thousands of entries that are received demonstrate both the beauty and variety of the UK landscape, its universal visual appeal and our ongoing love for exploring and photographing its many faces.

The subtle colours of a frosty morning at Corfe Castle shape the image that has won top prize in the search to find the ‘Landscape Photographer of the Year’. Dorset photographer, Antony Spencer, becomes the fourth person to win this prestigious title and the £10,000 prize. His picture was chosen, by the judges, from the thousands of entries that showcased the richly diverse landscape of the UK.
