Some of the top and winning images from this year’s landscape-photography competition
More than 3,400 entries were received in this year’s landscape-photography competition, from professional and amateur photographers around the world. Judges of the International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest narrowed the field down to a “Top 101,” then further to award several category prizes and the International Landscape Photographer of the Year award, which went to the Russian photographer Oleg Ershov for his images of England and Iceland. The organizers have been kind enough to share some of this year’s top and winning images below.

Even with a reduction in the category totals we were delighted to have received more entries than last year. The jury spent two long days in total, working through the 7,877 photographs, both in slideshow form, and as C-type prints, laid out on the huge Olivier foyer floor at the National Theatre.
A final edit of 146 photographs has been made and 16 prizes have been awarded. What follows is the winners list and a web gallery of the complete edit that will feature in the exhibition at the National Theatre from 4th July until 31st August. This is “The Press Photographer’s Year 2009”.
