The Seventh International Landscape Photographer Of The Year Competition Was Held In 2020. In This Round Of Competitions, The Quality Of The Winners’ Photos Is Surprisingly High.
Held annually in Sydney, Australia, the International Landscape Photography Competition in 2020 had more than 3,800 entrants competing for prizes and exposure.
This competition has two main prizes; While the title of “Photo of the Year” is awarded to the best single landscape photo, the honor of receiving the title of “International Landscape Photographer of the Year” goes to a collection of four works.
The winner of the quadruple photo series category receives the prize of the competition because, according to the organizers, creating a series of landscape photos requires more skill and artistic talent.
While the prizes of this competition are attractive and worthy of attention, the organizers say that most photographers participate in finding their names in the competition book. Stay with us to see these stunning images.
Group photo winners
The 2020 quadruple photo series winner was Kelvin Yuen, a 24-year-old photographer from Hong Kong. Kelvin used his Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera and several lenses to record these photos. Yuen also used the DJI Mavic 2 Pro quadcopter for aerial photography. According to him, its sensor produces high-quality files even in low-light conditions and can handle most weather conditions, including rain, low light, and low temperature.
