“The Norwegian Professional Photography Awards (Landskonkurransen) is the country’s most prestigious photography awards. The awards in the National Competition form the basis for selection of the national team in photography, participating in the World Photographic Cup – the World Cup in Photography.
I am truly honored to have been awarded two silver awards, one Bronze and one Honorable Mention in Landskonkurransen 2020. Being ranked number eight across all categories is incredibly humbling. I feel privileged to have my work showcased alongside such talented and creative artists. Congratulations to all the photographers and a huge thank you to the esteemed jury who have taken their time to deliberate over such a wide selection of images”.
The Norwegian National Photography Awards (Landskonkurransen) is the country’s most prestigious photography awards. Landskonkurransen is an annual competition accepting entries from all professional photographers and students / apprentices. The photographer with the highest total score is named Norwegian Photographer of the Year. The student / apprentice with the highest score is named Student / Apprentice of the Year. The picture with the highest score in each category becomes category winners. Gold, silver and bronze medals are also awarded in each category.
The awards in the National Competition form the basis for selection for the national team in photography, participating in the World Photographic Cup – the World Cup in Photography.
The national competition as we know it today took its form in the mid-80s, but the competition itself has its roots back to 1927. Then, the Norwegian Photographers’ National Association (which later became the Norwegian Photographer’s Association) organized its first annual Awards Competition, with one category and six participants. Since then, the competition has undergone several changes, both in name and form, and has grown considerably. Today, the National Competition is one of the country’s largest of its kind.
