"After two successful years Wilderness Photographer of the Year is going from strength to strength," says Great Walks editor Brent McKean.
"It's so exciting seeing the quality of entries we receive and just like the last two years we expect the competition to be fierce!"

PLACES: Panoramas and dramatic horizons, spectacular coastlines, photogenic mountains and inspiring wilderness scenes! In this category your images should not include people in the frame.
PEOPLE: Your best wilderness photos with people in the frame – the ones you meet on the trail, the rangers and wardens, the guides and the friends that share your adventures here and overseas.
