Amateur Photography is a venerable photography magazine that runs the annual Photographer Of The Year, or POTY for short. The latest round to have been judged is the 'Small Wonders' category. I highly recommend you check out the winners and, if you have the time, the rest of the pack too. It's well worth your time, believe me. Not only are the images amazing, they will inspire every photographer who is the least bit interested in macro photography.
Here is a screenshot of some of the winners:
So, be sure to visit the full list of winners and entries on the Photocrowd website here.
If you are interested in entering the POTY competition, there are still some rounds left to enter.
Amateur Photography magazine has been running the UK’s oldest and most prestigious photo competition for amateur photographers for years now and it's now bigger and better than ever!
The current round is 'City Slickers' and they are looking for cityscapes. It closes on the 28th July so get your skates on!
Prizes this year are provided by Sigma and there are some great prizes for the winners of each round. The overall winner will win the grand prize worth over £2,000! This consists of SIGMA 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art (£1199.99) + SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art (799.99) + SIGMA USB Dock (£39.99).
Eight winners chosen by the expert panel will win a Sigma lens worth approx. £1,000, whilst the winners are chosen by members of Photocrowd will win a year-long subscription to AP magazine and receive a year-long master-level subscription to Photocrowd.
In addition, each contest winners plus selections from the expert category in each contest will be featured in an issue of AP, as well as the AP website and social media channels. So, it's a good way of fine-tuning your photography by seeing how you measure up to other photographers, and you will get some free publicity too!
