I'm delighted to say that two of my images have been Commended in this year's Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. As well as appearing in the annual book the images will be displayed alongside a fine selection of winning and commended images during the official exhibition at the National Theatre in London.
Though I must be honest and say that I don't place a huge amount of stock in competitions - how can you really say some art is better than others? - it's still very reassuring and fulfilling to have two of my images so highly considered by such accomplished photographers and judges. It will be great to see them hanging in the company of many other fantastic images at the Exhibition (the images that is, not the judges! :)).
Congratulations to the winners and to everyone - including many friends and peers - who also met with success. From what I've seen so far there are many well deserved inclusions.
The LPOTY book is released on 31st October from Amazon. That's the Christmas presents for friends and family sorted. :)
The exhibition at the National Theatre is free and runs from 7th December 2013 until the 8th February 2014 so do pop along if you find yourself in London. If anyone else is going to the private viewing on 9th December I'm hoping to make it along so it will be great to meet you.
