We want a landscape - including coastal, but no pure seascape and no cityscape  - which includes a human artifact; that could be a building like a church, a bridge, a ruin, a lighthouse, but also a man-made object like a car, a tractor, a garden chair etc. The landscape MUST dominate in your painting and the object must stay an element of your composition, and not be the main feature.

It took a long time to go through the entries and I would just like to say they were all of exceptionally high quality that it was extremly hard to make my final decision! But decisions had to be made and here are my top six. Congratulations to the winners and commiserations to the ones who didn´t make it this time. I hope this selection will inspire you all to keep on creating such beautiful work!
