Submitted photographs must be portraits. ‘Portrait’ may be interpreted in its widest sense, of ‘photography concerned with portraying people with an emphasis on their identity as individuals’.
Photographers may submit up to six individual portraits or portraits in a series. A ‘series’ may mean either a group of separate portraits around a particular theme, or a number of pictures that when shown together combine to make up a single portrait work.
Please consider that previous first prize-winners, since and including 2008, are not eligible to enter the competition.
Entry Fees:- The entry fee for this competition is £20 per photograph entered.
