2020 Awards

As a result of the fractured nature of competition this year, due to COVID, it has been decided that the few prints that were accepted early in the year will be considered as ‘images’ together with digital ‘images’.

Not having a print section this year is lamentable, but necessary to the very uneven playing field created early on this year.

We will be accepting print entries for 2021 and the first competition month, January, on Dec 8, and we will manage to have a print competition no matter what lockdown state ensues.

This is the fairest response to this unfortunate year.
