In 2019 there are eleven categories to enter. Across all eleven 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. Please see our category pages for further details.

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. In 2019 we are also opening 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 20 highest voted images will be added to a Facebook gallery alongside the other eleven category galleries featuring the top 20 highest scoring images from each category. The image with the most engagements in each category will receive a People’s Choice Award.
