100 Mile Radius: A Landscape Photography Competition



In 2015 British curator Stuart Pilkington set up The Pilkington Prize.

The Pilkington Prize has been set up as an annual photography competition, which has a low entry fee but where the prizes will increase in value and excitement year in, year out.

The first photography competition was set up in 2015 and is called ‘100 Mile Radius’. It is a landscape photography competition and is open to any photographer, both amateur and professional, from any country in the world.

Find a map of where you currently live and pinpoint your home on that map.

Draw a circle that is a 100 mile radius around your house and then locate a landscape, that is within that area.

Drive to that location and take a photograph of that landscape with any camera that you choose, (large format, medium format, digital SLR, lomo, camera phone etc etc) and in any style of your choosing.

Document the land using your unique voice

It can be a straightforward interpretation or abstract or any style that you favour.

It has to be a new piece of work in response to the brief and one image per entry.

Submit your image as a jpg, (1500 pixels in height and any DPI).

The top 50 images will be featured on the ‘100 Mile Radius’ website from September 2015 onwards.
