Landscape Photographer of the Year

The Landscape Photographer of the Year is an annual photographic competition founded in 2006 by Charlie Waite, one of today’s most respected landscape photographers.

It is open to everyone and in the words of Waite, communicates the ‘rich diversity of the British landscape, which is something that is available to all of us and is ours to enjoy’.

After seven successful years at the National Theatre, the exhibition has now been moved to another iconic location - the busiest station in Britain (a quarter of a million visitors each day) - London Waterloo. The exhibition will be held on the Mezzanine level of the station and will run for nine weeks.


With a total prize fund worth £20,000, a full-colour book of best entries and a popular annual exhibition, Landscape Photographer of the Year celebrates all that is great about the British landscape and showcases the work of many talented photographers, inspiring visitors to experience the joys of British landscapes at first hand.


Admission is free and access is unprecedented in the Awards eight-year history – as long as the station is open, visitors will have the chance to see it; over 1200 hours of opportunity.
