We are delighted to announce that local photographer, Damian Ward, has achieved major recognition in this year's Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.
Damain had five images shortlisted this year, and three have been commended by the judges and have won a place in the awards book. One of these images, Damian's picture of Caister-on-Sea has also been chosen as the winner of the Adobe Prize, a twelve month subscription of Adobe's Creative Cloud software.
This photograph will also feature in the exhibition at Waterloo station in London.
Damian commented: "This is only my second year of entering the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, so getting five images shortlisted itself was a huge achievement. I am even more happy that three have been commended, and one has won a prize!"
The exhibition will be at Waterloo station in London and run from 21st November 2016 until the 5th February 2017. The accompanying book is available to purchase from today, Monday 24th October.
The full list of the winners can be found on the 'Take a View' website.
