Last chance to see 'Lines in the Landscape' exhibition at the National Railway Museum

27th April 2014

National Railway Museum by DL


Seems like only yesterday that we were at the opening of the 'Lines in the Landscape' exhibition at the fantastic National Railway Museum in York but it was actually last November - not sure where the time goes.

This means you have just one week left to see the exhibition before it closes on May 5th 2014.

Just to remind you.... Entry is free and you can see all the images from the four years of the Network Rail 'Lines in the Landscape Award in print for the first time.

Photo shows Charlie just before the exhibition opened.

Find out more here.


See video of 'Landscape Photographer of the Year' awards night 2013

10th January 2014


Thanks to Ben Harvey of The Difference Engine who has produced a short video of our eighth annual Awards night at the National Theatre last Autumn. You can see the result here.

All the stills photography was done by Paul Mellor and, to the left, you can see one of his images of the projection that took place on the opening night, when all the winning and commended images were seen on the outside of the Theatre at over 30 feet across. They all looked stunning.

A great way to have your name in lights.
