Our Wilderness Photographer of the Year, presented by Mountain Designs has closed.
Thanks to everyone who entered the competition. The quality of images is next level and we know our judges are going to have their work cut out for them picking their favourites.
We received almost 500 entries so that's a great sign that people love to take their cameras outdoors and record what they see.
"It's so encouraging to see the calibre of images entered into the competition improving every year," says Great Walks editor Brent McKean.
“I want to first thank our wonderful sponsors who came on board with some fantastic prizes. Thanks to Mountain Designs, Life's An Adventure and GME. I'm certain the quality of prizes on offer was a great incentive for people to enter the comp."
So the next stage is judging. This will take some weeks as 500 entries are whittled down to 10 entries per category and then winners and runners-up are chosen.
We'll be announcing the winners online and in the magazine in early 2024 so keep an eye out for that - and thanks again to everyone who entered.
