Spectacular Winners of the 2019 International Landscape Photographer of the Year Contest

Almost 850 landscape photographers from around the world submitted their best work to the 2019 International Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. The expert panel of judges narrowed a field of 3,400 images to select the best portfolio and single photograph. Russian photographer Oleg Ershov took home the top prize for his incredible range of landscape photography from England and Iceland.

Oleg Ershov defeats Chinese photographer Yang Guang, who had an impressive showing with his collection of images from the Badain Jaran Desert. The best single image was awarded to French photographer Magali Chesnel for her aerial photo of the salt marshes in Grussain, France. In the categories of Snow and Ice, Abstract Aerial, Wildlife in Nature, Lone Tree, and Heavenly Cloud, several special awards were also handed out for the best single photos.
