    Your Assignment:

    Choose your favourite landscape season photo from your collection and submit it. Think about composition, use of light and even the possibility of storytelling when you choose your best photo to submit. Haven’t got one yet? Get out there and shoot a Winter one! Remember this is your chance to show us your absolute best! Be tough on yourself and weed out the weaker ones to let the best rise to the top, then submit only one photo. Good luck!

    Judging

    First Round: Initial judging will take place during upload. If your image is chosen as a first round qualifier it will appear in the gallery. All others will be deleted. Typically entries are judged within 24hrs of upload.

    Second Round: Finalist judging will take place immediately upon closing of the assignment. Finalists will be notified for hi resolution images for further judging.

    Final Round: A winner will be chosen from the finalists and contacted.
