In 2020 there are eight categories to enter. Across all eight categories we are looking for original, thought provoking photography. We love seeing striking imagery that excels at storytelling and allows us to see the world in a different way.

As photography develops so do new ways to produce work. For digital composite we accept imagery in our Open/Illustrative category. In all other categories we only accept traditional manipulations.

Secondary and or tertiary students can automatically choose to go in the running for the student category prize after submitting an entry into any of the other categories. We also have a Junior category for people aged 13 and under, entrants must be of age when entering.

All entrants can select to be in the People’s Choice Award by sharing their entries through Facebook after submitting. The 40 highest voted images will be added to a Facebook gallery. The image with the most engagements will receive a People’s Choice Award.
