Ok time to put you out of your misery, or to just make you more miserable. Today I announce the “Landscape 500”.
The most prestigious landscape photography competition to ever be held in the southern hemisphere.
You are the stars, you have the chance to take home the glory, you are ones who will be talked about for years to come. This competition will reward the best in enthusiast photography in Australia. Yes thats right, it is only open to non professional photographers and the images to be entered can only have been shot in Australia or an Australian territory. No shots of the Himalayas here, this is a competition to show we have the most beautiful country in the world and the best photographers.
The photographs entered must be of a landscape but can include urban, cityscapes or landscapes with people. No portraits or weddings please, Yikes!!
The winners will be judged by some of Australias best photographers, including Peter Eastway, Tom Putt, David Evans and Nick Rains. The prizes are awesome and I will talk more about them and all the competition details in the coming week.
So now start thinking about what you have that might win this competition. Why is it called the “Landscape 500”?, that is the number of entries that are allowed. Most competitions attract thousands of entries, this one is different, it is a limited edition you could say. Each person will be able to upload 3 images per entry but you will be able to enter as many times as you like, each entry of three images comes off the 500 allowable. So do the stats, 500 possible entries, 4 prizes, your chances of taking something away are pretty good.
