If you’ve forgotten even for a moment how beautiful our planet can be, the winning images from the 2018 International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest will remind you of this fact.

‘Trees a Crowd’ by Adam Gibbs (Canada) was one of the photos in the collection that won the artist the ‘International Landscape Photographer of the Year’ title.

There were over 3,000 entries submitted by over 800 photographers from across the globe in this fifth edition of the competition, and looking at the winning photos, we suspect that the judges had a tough time deciding.

The spectacular landscape images were narrowed down to 101 and these will be showcased in a limited-edition book. The winners were selected from these 101 entries, each of which all stood a good chance of taking one of the top spots and the chance of winning $10,000 (about R140,000), among other prizes.

‘Twisted Forest’ by Adam Gibbs was one of the photos in the collection that won the artist the ‘International Landscape Photographer of the Year’ title.

Adam Gibbs, a Canadian photographer, took the ‘International Landscape Photographer of the Year’ title for his portfolio of images, while American photographer Paul Marcellini’s photo Autumnal Abstract, took another top award for the ‘International Landscape Photograph of the Year’.
