Amateur Photographer Magazine Competition 2022


About Competition

Amateur Photographer magazine invites amateur photographers from around the world to enter its annual competition for the chance to win monthly prizes, exposure in the magazine, and the title of ‘Amateur Photographer of the Year 2022’, which for the second year is brought to you in partnership with our sponsor, MPB.

Theme of competition

Our options for travel have been severely curtailed in the past couple of years, but there’s still plenty of scope in this round – however near or far the place you are photographing may be from your own home. Visiting somewhere new can really get the creative juices flowing, and photographing the buildings, landmarks, and people you encounter will help to convey the real spirit of a place. Get up early and visit a local market or stay out late and shoot lights reflected in water. Talk to people – a smile can go a long way towards securing willing subjects. Try not to ‘steal’ a shot; be patient and courteous.
