Landscape at the Edge

The Landscape Foundation photographic competition 2017 seeks to gather images from across Aotearoa/New Zealand’s cultural landscapes, seascapes, and urban environments, under the theme “Landscape at the Edge”

At the edge of the world New Zealands landscapes are the result of geological, biological and human processes over scales of space and time. We live at the edge, our towns and cities are located at key geographic cross roads and along waterways and harbours. What does the term ‘NZ Landscape at the Edge’ mean to you? We seek evocative images of natural, cultural and constructed landscapes which capture the dynamics and contrast of : edge effects, the edge of growth, edge of an ecosystem, on a knife edge, along an urban rural edge, or more conceptual ideas; how people and cultures occupy edges and boundaries in the landscape?

We want to see your finest landscape images. Tell us how they represent Landscape on the Edge, and be in to win the Nikon Key Mission 170 -with a body that’s waterproof, dust-proof, shockproof and freeze-proof. Entering is simple: click the enter button above to upload your photo and details, and like us on facebook.
