London Waterloo station is playing host to the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards exhibition for the second year in a row - until 7th February 2016
The retail balcony of Britain’s busiest station – which is used by more than 100 million people every year – has been transformed into a multimedia gallery for the free event.
Network Rail is supporting the competition, which highlights the best imagery of Britain’s beautiful rural and urban scenery. Amateur and professional photographers alike compete for the top £10,000 prize.
Dozens of images of the winning and commended entries from this year's competition are being exhibited, including this year’s overall winning photograph by Andy Farrer, of the beach and cliffs at Bat's Head in Dorset.
The winning image from the Network Rail Lines in the Landscape award, which rewards the best image taken of Britain’s railway network, will also be on display. This year Robert France took the top prize with his stunning photograph of a freight train curving through the countryside as it approaches a sunlit Ribblehead Viaduct in North Yorkshire.
Charlie Waite, founder of the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards said:
"These Awards aim to tell the world that the British landscape is perfect for great experiences of all kinds. We hope that the millions of people who will pass through Waterloo during the exhibition – regular commuters and visitors from home and overseas – will enjoy the photography of our talented winners and help to spread the word that Britain is a wonderful place to explore and photograph."
David Biggs, managing director of property at Network Rail said:
"This competition celebrates something very special – the way this country looks from its coasts, cities and countryside, much of which can be viewed or visited by our rail network. We want to create truly exceptional stations for passengers and visitors by bringing the arts and interactivity into a natural exhibition space"
The Awards are held in association with Visit Britain and the Countryside is GREAT campaign.
