There's just a week left to enter the 2016 USA Landscape Photographer of the Year Competition! 

The USA Landscape Photographer of the Year Competition was founded in 2013 by Charlie Waite, one of the world's most respected landscape photographers, and this year, the competition is bigger than ever. With a top prize of $15,000, the contest spans five main categories, 'Environmental Value', 'My USA', 'Black & White', 'Classic View', and 'Urban'.

In addition to these five categories, DPReview is partnering with the competition to create a new award - 'Life in the Landscape', which will be judged by DPReview's editors and writers. An additional special award, 'Wild Landscape' is sponsored by Future Publishing.

The competition is divided into two main classes - the USA Landscape Photographer of the Year Award and the Young USA Landscape Photographer of the Year Award. To enter Young USA Landscape Photographer of the Year, you must be 18 or under on the closing date of September 15, 2016. There are 7 categories within each of the two classes and up to 20 images may be entered across some or all of these categories, and photographers can enter the same image in more than one category and / or special award.

To enter a single image costs $10, while $30 allows you to enter up to 5 images, and $45 allows you to enter up to 20 images. Entrants for the Young USA Photographer of the Year Award pay a flat fee of $10 for up to 20 images.

The deadline for entry is September 15th.
