2017 theme: Landscape Story

Submission deadline extended to Friday 29th September 2017 at 6pm.

This year’s competition is about explaining the story behind the physical landscape; why it looks the way it does, how it was formed, the interaction of processes, and the passage of time needed to create the scene in front of you.

To enter, you’ll need to submit a photograph of a landscape (perhaps from a field trip).  Landscapes can be big or small, but the story should reflect the scale of what you have captured on camera.

You have 250 words to tell the geographical story of your landscape, so be concise, accurate, and make sure you use geographical language.

There are some examples, plus other tips for creating a good entry,  in the Tips section, and more information on the other pages of the site.
