Photography Competition 2019
‘Capturing movement’ was the theme of the competition in 2019. Life on Earth is constantly changing, and we invited individuals to photograph nature in motion.
There are two categories in the competition, each with a cash prize:
- Photographer of the Year (18 and over) - £1,000 top prize
- Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) - £500 top prize
How to enter
The Photography Competition 2019 is now closed for entries.
Shortlisted entries will be announced in September 2019, and the winning entries announced in October 2019.
We request you read the competition's terms and conditions before entering and submitting your photographs.
