World Landscape Photographer announces winners for 2022 and helps to raise record amount for Ukraine Appeal Fund

Showcasing the stunning landscape images that were submitted from all over 67 different countries the World Landscape Photographer competition has named the 13 prize winners.  The competition that is growing significantly year on year aims to raise money for charity around a love of photography.  This year the completion raised over £16K for British Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.

Over 1600 entrants entered over 8000 images in four main categories of Vistas, Seascapes, Woodlands and Abstract / Close up were whittled down to 200 and a panel of judges comprising of 7 internationally renowned photographers looked for originality, emotion, composition, lighting and just general wow factor to select an overall winner, and 3 prize winners in each category.

1st Place went to Paul Killeen from Northern Ireland with his fleeting woodland moment of some dawn fog.

Competition founder and professional landscape photographer, Nigel Danson commented, “The key reason I enjoy landscape photography is that every time I go into a woodland, climb a mountain or visit the coast I never know what I am going to see.  I am always surprised and occasionally I capture that amazing moment.  But it is not often I capture one as beautiful as this.  I can imagine the eerie quiet of the foggy woodland and then these two birds suddenly flutter into the scene.  We would all be pleased with just the woodland shot but to get these birds perfectly in the frame with their wings mirroring each other was incredible. A brilliant winning image”

As well as the coveted 1st place in the 2022 World Landscape Photography competition the winner also receives a Nikon ZII camera and 24-70mm F4 Lens.  This was donated by Nikon along with prizes from Benro, Kase, Fotospeed, Lexar, BenQ, Arc’teryx and Datacolor.

Nigel created the World Landscape Photographer competition during lockdown in 2020 and said, “Originally this was only meant to last for one year but we raised so much money and it was fantastic fun.  In the current economic climate it is more and more difficult for charities to raise money.  I am so proud that as a community of landscape photographers we can get together and raise this much money for the Red Cross Ukraine Appeal”
