The International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2022 (ILPOTY)  has been awarded to Chilean photographer Benjamin Briones Grandi for a series of images that almost look like paintings. Now in its ninth year, the ILPOTY received a staggering 3813 entries and the top 101 will be included in the 2022 ILPOTY book. 

Taking home the top prize of US$5,000 cash, a NiSi 100m V7 professional 100mm filter kit worth US$1,199 plus a copy of the ILPOTY 2022 award books with his winning images is Benjamin Briones Grandi. His series of four images selected from the folio category include landscapes that truly look out of this world. From monochromatic, white deserts to mountains doused in magical light, while his photos are of real places, they give the impression of fantasy, far-away worlds.
