Amateur Photographer Awards 2013

We are looking forward to announcing the winners of the Amateur Photographer Awards 2013 on 7th February.

The Amateur Photographer Awards have recognised the best photographic equipment for 37 years.

The awards will be split into different categories for cameras, software, printers, accessories, lenses etc.

In addition, the Good Service Awards recognise retailers who have been commended as giving great sales and after-sales service.

There will also be a grand prize for the all-important Amateur Photographer reader-nominated Reader Product of the Year.

Two further awards will also be presented for “Power of Photography” and an “Exceptional Achievement in Photography”.
