Over 1,400 photographers entered the 2021 World Landscape Photographer competition, with 6,512 total images being submitted for judging. When all was said and done, only six images were award prizes, including the overall winning image titled ‘Atlantic Winter Storm meets Ireland,’ captured by photographer Felix Sproll.
The World Landscape Photographer competition was founded in 2020 by landscape photographer Nigel Danson. ‘The aim of the competition is to raise as much money for charity as possible whilst bringing together the best nature photographers from around the world in a competition,’ says Danson.
Originally, the competition was meant to be a one-off project, but due to its success in its innaugural year, Danson decided to repeat it and further make an impact by donating money raised from the competition to environmental causes.
