Fall in love with the natural world thanks to the winners of the 2020 International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest.
For the seventh year, the International Landscape Photographer of the Year competition highlights the beauty of our environment. Over 3,800 breathtaking images flooded in from photographers around the world, giving the judges a tough decision. In the end, it was 24-year-old photographer Kelvin Yuen from Hong Kong who was named International Landscape Photographer of the Year for his strong portfolio.
The second biggest award, which goes to the photographer who shot the single best image, was given to German photographer Kai Hornung. His sprawling aerial image of the Icelandic highlands caught the eyes of the judges, which is even more impressive when one considers that photography is not his full-time job. Hornung considers himself a semi-professional photographer and spends his days working as a human resources consultant in the finance industry.
All of the winners, which also include photographers from five special category awards, will split a prize pool that includes a $10,000 cash prize. In addition, the winners and top 101 photographers now have their work included in an eBook that is available for free download from the competition’s website.
