What makes a great landscape photograph? What makes one photograph better than another? And can you really give photographs a score? With these philosophical questions in mind, the International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2014 weaves a narrow path through the complexities of art and the contradictions of competition. We award places for both photographs and photographers, and then we deliver the top 101 landscape photographs. Is this the best collection of contemporary landscape photography you have ever seen?

And within this book, we present the very best 101 landscape photographs submitted from all over the world. You will find the simplest and most elegant of compositions sitting next to an adventurous and sophisticated composite. Which do you like? Or, like us, do you simply enjoy the art of landscape photography, no
