We see a great deal of landscape photography here at Popular Photography, but the 2014 U.S.A. Landscape Photographer of the Year contest is trying to find the best our fair land has to offer.
Popular Photography editor-in-chief, Miriam Leuchter is one of the judges for the contest and some of the winners will be featured in the magazine.
The contest has two title awards: U.S.A. Landscape Photographer of the Year and Young U.S.A. Landscape Photographer of the Year which will be awarded to someone under the age of 21. There are also five category awards, including Black & White, Landscape on the Move, Urban Landscape, Classic View, and My U.S.A.
The prize for the main title is $5,000 cash, plus an exhibition of their images and other prizes. The youth overall winner gets $1,000 and the same prizes. Each category title comes with prizes worth at least $500, plus tons of exposure.
Submitting a portfolio of three images comes with an entry fee or $35 for adults and $25 for young people. If that’s a bit steep for you, there are other options as well.
Entry period closes on April 17th, so there’s not much time left to get your images in. It’s a great contest and we think it will turn up some fantastic work that might otherwise go undiscovered. So, break out your tripod and maybe your ND filters and make some magic.
