Most of us would probably agree that living through these difficult times, it's quite easy to forget how spectacular and mesmerizing the world we live in truly is. Luckily, we've got a lot of talented artists and annual photography contests, such as the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, that do a very good job of reminding us of all these things.
For the 13th time, this year's Landscape Photographer of the Year competition invited both professional and amateur photographers to celebrate the mesmerizing landscape of the United Kingdom. The contest has four categories as well as the youth competition for photographers aged 18 or under. The winner of the whole contest gets awarded the prestigious title "Landscape Photographer of the Year 2020" and £10,000. In addition, there are also prizes of £1000 and £500 for the images judged the best and second-best in each of four categories. The best photographer in the youth competition becomes the "Young Landscape Photographer of the Year 2020" and wins £1,000.
With that being said, Bored Panda invites you to look through some of the most spectacular shots from the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition 2020.
