Photographer of the Year 2016
This was judged in Rhyl by a team of Societies' Fellows. The total entry was 10,468 and this was reduced by the monthly judges to 585 Gold awards across 26 categories. The Golds include the upgrades from highly commended entries made by the judging panel in Rhyl, effectively a repêchage system. The panel reduced the number to 104 nominated finalists, approximately three per category.
This year the Rhyl finals were judged on the fabulous calibrated Eizo monitors so that the judges had a perfect view of the entries – it was a great success and the Societies are indebted to Eizo.
