Charlie Waite, one of Britain’s leading landscape photographers and founder of the Awards said:

“Andy’s winning photograph of this beautiful area of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a gentle image with a simple, effective composition that reflects the mood of a cold, winter’s morning. It is believable and appealing, with the snow adding an interesting dimension to a classic scene.”

The Young Landscape Photographer of the Year went to Mairi Ayres for her exquisite capturing of a daisy viewed through a tiny water droplet.
