To encourage creativity no prescriptive definition of “landscape” has been specified for the Laurie Thomas Landscape competition.
Wikipedia’s definition of “landscape” suggests the prevalent content of landscape images the:
“Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes.”
Prescribing the nature of what might constitute a natural or man-made “landscape” would restrict photographers’ freedom of artistic expression. While we would not expect significant alterations to the physical facts we do wish to encourage entrants to present their own interpretation of their chosen subject matter.
