As part of the 10th year celebrations, Landscape Photographer Of The Year will have a representative exhibition of only twelve large printed images which have been selected to be shown at the BBC Countryfile Live event, taking place at Blenheim Palace near Oxford between 4th & 7th August. I'm very pleased to say that my photograph The Cotswold Way has been selected by the team as one of the twelve in the printed exhibition...
Following on from my success in Landscape Photographer Of The Year, I received news today that I've also been short listed for Outdoor Photographer Of The Year 2014, in association with Outdoor Photography Magazine. Unlike Landscape Photographer Of The Year which is restricted to UK based photography, this is a global competition and attracts some of the best amateur and professional photographers (and scenery!) from all over the world. As such, being even considered for such an award is some nice recognition.
I've been fortunate enough to have been shortlisted for Landscape Photographer Of The Year in 2011, 2012 and now 2013 with Commended images appearing in the Awards Book and feature Print Exhibition at the National Theatre Gallery on London's Southbank for the last two years.
It's certainly not every day you see your name under an image being beamed across London from the roof of a building hosting a national Landscape Photography exhibition with your image in! This was certainly a top moment which I shared with Mrs B at the Landscape Photographer Of The Year Awards 2012 at the National Theatre on London's South Bank.
