Monthly Image Competition and Photographer of the Year Awards

Competitions for Photographers

Monthly Image Competition - Photography Competition

The Societies’ Monthly Image 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 Presentation Evening.

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