The Landscape Photographer of the Year touring exhibition opened today at Leeds station. Awards founder, Charlie Waite was there to chat to visitors and it was great to meet up again with Robert France. Rob's image of a freight train crossing the majestic Ribblehead Viaduct in the Yorkshire Dales won the Network Rail 'Lines in the Landscape' Award in 2015. Since then, Rob's railway imagery has been chosen for semi-permanent display at a number of Network Rail stations, including Leeds.
The Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibition has arrived at Manchester Piccadilly station! Big thanks to Network Rail and Pete and his team - some of whom worked through the night to install the exhibition while most of us were asleep. Free to see until 22 Apr (then on to Leeds). Exhibition print & installation by: Emagination Store (email@example.com)
Could you be our 11th winner? Images taken within the five years preceding the closing date are eligible, so you may already have that winning image but spring is definitely in the air, so it's a great excuse to take your camera out and enjoy the wide variety of stunning landscapes that Britain has to offer. Closing date: 8th July 2017
Just before the exhibition finished at London Waterloo, Awards founder Charlie Waite took time out to chat to visitors and say a few words about the exhibition tour and the 10th Anniversary Special Edition book by AA Publishing. You can see the resulting short film by film maker, Sam Hurt, here.
Revised dates are as follows:
Manchester Piccadilly - 13 April to 22 April
Leeds - 24 April to 13 May

We are really looking forward to the end of April when our Special Edition 10th Anniversary Book by AA Publishing will be released. It has over 250 photographs, including all overall winners and adult category winners plus a selection from each of the 10 years of the competition so far. We've been lucky enough to have a sneak preview and we think it looks great. It is larger than the annual volumes both in page size and in the number of pages and will be available from all the usual bookstores and online outlets, where it is available for pre-order now (RRP £35).
