Thousands of entries were received but winner Ian Cameron impressed with his stunning images shot in the Highlands with his “ancient” camera.

Ian said: “I am absolutely delighted and surprised to have won. I thought the pictures I’d entered were pretty decent and that I’d do okay, but wow! I don’t enter many competitions so to win such a high accolade is definitely one of my proudest moments.”

The competition, now in its second year, seeks to promote and inspire photographers of all levels to explore Scotland’s diverse rural, urban and coastal landscapes, and to  promote Scotland’s natural, cultural and historic heritage to an international audience.  Winning entries will be published in a series of public exhibitions and in a special edition book that will be published on 29th February 2016.

Stuart Low, the founder and head judge of the competition said: “The competition has gone from strength to strength  after last year’s inaugural competition captivated the public with our best-selling book.

More than double the number of photographers entered the competition this time round – and they came from the four corners of the globe. They’ve taken to the land, the coasts and the streets, and they’ve captured the most beautiful and diverse views of our amazing country. Hats off to them all! ”
