The Romantic Landscape – Juried Book Competition

Photographers are being asked to create single images that engage their vision of the romantic nature of the landscape that surrounds them. Across the globe, countries name their seasons differently, and some also vary the starting date of their seasons.

The purpose of the Romantic Landscape juried competition is to extend our understanding of what contemporary landscapes look like across our world today.

Three photographers whose image best demonstrates photographic excellence, and shows they have engaged deeply with the theme of romantic landscape, will be awarded a cash award. A further 22 photographers works will receive honorable mentions.

The Romantic Landscape Juried Competition – A Call for Photographers Worldwide

The World Landscape is now calling on photographers to submit images for consideration in a juried book competition.

Romanticism has long been associated with the Landscape. In photography, the romantic nature of the landscape often features its spirit in full bloom. It is typically very hard to categories. At times its very nature is uncontrollable, and often unpredictable, while at other times, it possesses a quiet and sensual power that manifests its nature in stunningly beautiful vistas. Sometimes the romantic landscape may feature people or animals in the landscape, while at other times, its landscape will be desolate and bereft of life. The most notable feature of the romantic landscape photograph is that it will inspire imaginations, and stir strong feelings in its audience.

Photographers are being asked to create single images that engage with the romantic nature of the landscape that surrounds us. This award is open to professional, emerging and student photographers.

Picturing the World Family and The World Landscape is an initiative of FIER Institute, a not for profit organization established to advance the role of fine arts photography, documentary photography, and alternate photographic process and practice. FIER is an acronym for Fotographic Initiatives in Education and Research.
