Here Are The Winners Of The 2019 International Landscape Photographer Of The Year Contest (30 Pics)

The International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest has just announced its 2019 winners, and their pics are the perfect reminders of just how diverse and beautiful our Mother Earth really is.

This year, the competition had 3,403 entries from 840 participants. The cut-off score this year was 85.2%, but the organizers said there were hundreds of images scoring above 80% which could happily sit alongside the photographs in the book they’re publishing this year.

After carefully reviewing all of the submitted pictures, the six judges, including last year’s winner, Adam Gibbs, determined that Oleg Ershov from Russia was to be named the International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2019 while Magali Chesnel from France took home The International Landscape Photograph of the Year award.

The entries presented for judging had to be photographic in origin (taken with a camera) but there were no limits on post-production. This means the participants were allowed to use HDR, tone mapping, cloning, composites, stitching, focus-stacking, etc. The only rule was that all post-production must’ve been the work of that particular photographer. They couldn’t have someone else edit or work on their images.
