APOY round 4 is open: Landscapes
April 17, 2021
It is hard to believe but we are on round 4 of APOY already.
With its varied categories, there should be a round for you, no matter what you like to shoot. You might choose to enter just one category or enter them all with the aim of taking home the main prize and, of course, the title of Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021.
The competition is open to all amateur photographers* and we have again teamed up with Photocrowd, who will be hosting the competition on a simple and intuitive platform.
This year we have two new categories. Under-21s can enter the Young Amateur Photographer of the Year, with each category winner receiving a £250 voucher for MPB, and the overall winner being awarded a £500 voucher.
Finally, there’s a camera club category, where you can accumulate points for your society. The most successful club will receive a voucher for £500.
*For the purposes of this competition, an amateur photographer is defined as someone who earns 10% or less of their income from photography or photographic services.
Send us your landscapes so we can dig the scene!
So far we’ve had Black and White, Natural World and Home, and round 4 is on another very popular genre – landscapes.
Landscape photography is easily accessible for most and we’ve got a whole world full of potential subjects. Because this subject is so favoured, you will need to work hard to stand out – but we’ve kept the brief fairly loose so you can show us your interpretations of landscape. Whether you want to include grand sweeping mountain vistas or concentrate on abstract details, it’s time to submit your best scenic shots for our consideration.
Click here for the Young APOY ‘Landscapes’ category – free to enter for 13-21 year olds.
There are £11,000 (GBP) worth of vouchers to win in APOY 2021, supplied by sponsors, MPB, plus the title of Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021. Good luck!
