The International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2019 winners

The International Landscape Photographer of the Year (ILPOTY) has announced the winners of the 2019 contest. Both professional and amateur photographers from all over the globe posted their photos, and the best of the best have been selected. From vast spaces to abstract patterns, the winning photos show the immense beauty of the world that surrounds us.

In 2019, photographers submitted their work the sixth annual ILPOTY contest. The judges had to choose from nearly 3,500 entries from 840 contestants, who were competing for valuable prizes including US $10,000.

This year’s overall winner is Oleg Ershov from Russia and he won a prize based on the portfolio he submitted. While he is an avid and very skillful photographer, it isn’t his primary occupation. He works for a food distribution company and spends most of his free time shooting landscapes.

“My interest for photography began in 2007 when I bought my first DSLR camera and signed up for a photo tour to the Southwest USA. I was struck by the tremendous variety of landscapes, colours and textures found in nature. Since then, I spend all my free time improving my skills and knowledge in landscape photography. I usually spend six weeks a year on photo trips, sometimes in groups, often on my own.”

The second and third place were awarded to Yang Guang from China and Blake Randall from Canada respectively.

When it comes to the main prize for a single photo, Magali Chesnel from France was awarded the main prize in this category. I personally love the winning image, it kept my attention for quite a while and I find it very interesting.

Sander Grefte from the Netherlands was awarded the second place for an individual photo, whereas Peter Adam Hoszang from Hungary won the third place in the Single Photo category.

You can check out more of the stunning photos from the contest below, each of them being a winner in its category. You can see the full gallery on ILPOTY’s website, where you can also take a look at their eBook with selected images.

    Wow, blurring the line between art and photography in some, which is definitely not a bad thing.
