Judging is over for 2015! | Open Comps | 2016 Convention Trade Show | Latest News | Convention Voucher | Competitions |


The final judging of the year to find The Societies' Photographer of the Year 2015 has now been competed.

The 26 category winners were chosen from all the Gold Awards and Highly Commended Upgrades from 2015. After this all the category winners were put forward to The Societies' Photographer of the Year 2015 Award.

This year we have seen a bumper crop of images and the judges have assessed 11,739 images that have been entered in to the Monthly Image Competition.

The category winners and The Societies' Photographer of the Year 2015 will be announced at the Awards Dinner during the 2016 London Photo Convention

We would like to take this time to thank all the members that have submitted images over the course of the year and to all our judges who have given their time.

A big thanks also goes to Eizo for supplying a ColorEdge monitor, to make sure the images were assessed on a fully colour managed and high-quality screen.

Good luck to all the entrants and we look forward to seeing you all at the Awards Dinner.
