Birmingham New Street showcases Britain’s stunning landscapes as search begins for Landscape Photographer of the Year

Published on : Friday, April 29, 2016

1Birmingham New Street station will launch a nationwide photography exhibition tomorrow showcasing some of the most highly acclaimed images of British landscapes.Featuring winning and commended images from last year’s Landscape Photographer of the Year Award, the exhibition will be officially opened by the award’s founder and renowned photographer, Charlie Waite, at 10am before embarking on a nationwide tour of railway stations across Britain.

 

The exhibition marks the tenth Landscape Photographer of the Year competition and will showcase the best of Britain’s rural and urban scenery, while offering a top cash prize of £10,000.

 

Network Rail is supporting the competition, offering the ‘Lines in the Landscape’ award, celebrating images that really capture the spirit of today’s rail network and its surrounding landscapes. The 2016 winner will be given the opportunity to take pictures from normally restricted areas of one of the most iconic structures in Britain – the Forth Bridge in Scotland. Standing at 110 metres above water and spanning 2.5km in length, the winner will really be able to put their camera to work while taking advantage of the breathtaking views the bridge has to offer.

 

David Biggs, managing director of property at Network Rail, said: “An important part of our Railway Upgrade Plan is creating stations that are truly exceptional places for commuters, leisure travellers and for those wanting to visit stations in their own right. The Landscape Photography exhibition proved extremely popular while on display at London Waterloo station, and we are delighted to bring it to other parts of the country where it can be enjoyed by millions more people. I hope that the exhibition inspires budding photographers to go out and capture their favourite railway image and enter into the competition.”Charlie Waite is keen to encourage more people to enter the railway award.
