Braving the harshest climates and most gruelling terrains, some photographers will go to the ends of the Earth for the perfect shot.

Their efforts, however, do not go unrecognised, and the International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards provides the perfect opportunity to showcase their finest work.

Judges have now whittled down nearly 3,000 entries to determine the winners of this year's competition.

The winning photographers have captured some of the Earth's most incredible natural features, from mesmerising mountains to breathtaking woodlands.

Winner of the top prize was Canadian Adam Gibbs, who has been a professional photographer for nearly 30 years. He said his “love of nature and the outdoors is much stronger than my desire to make images”.

Along with the winning images, we've collected our favourites from the final shortlist in the gallery above.
