The Societies' Monthly Image Competition

Photography Competition

The Societies’ monthly online competition is a ‘must’ for all our members. There are 27 categories that cover all aspects of photography and it is judged by some of the most esteemed Fellow, Master and Grand Master photographers in the UK and across the world. All entries which gain the coveted ‘Gold’ award are put forward to our annual judging and, if deemed to be the best, can gain their maker a prestigious ‘Photographer of the Year’ Award within its category at our annual Awards Dinner.

The closing date for the monthly competition is the last day of each month; it runs every month except December. All the awards for this competition are presented at the annual Awards Dinner in January at the Convention.

Judges' Choice Award

Each month one of the Gold images is selected as the Judges' Choice Award.

Disqualified: These images have not adhered to the competition rules or category definitions.
 


Monthly Image Competition Results

Photo Quote: Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions. Ask yourself: "Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream? Can I visualize a print - my own personal statement of what I feel and want to convey - from the subject before me? -Ansel Adams
