Amateur and enthusiast photographers from all around the country have gathered their best images and submitted them to the expert judgement of our panel of industry leaders — Brett Stanley, Charles Howells, Katherine Williams, Kaye Davis, Mark Gee, Michael Miller, Richard Wood, Peter Robertson, and Simon Devitt. For several years, the Sigma Amateur Photographer of the Year has been the country’s largest amateur photography contest and certainly the most popular online gallery of its kind. Each year, the quantity of entries increases, and so, too, the calibre of images improves. 2017’s contest received a record 9337 submissions across the 11 categories, many of which prove that advanced photographic technologies and techniques, such as focus stacking, aerial imaging, and timelapse, are no longer reserved for the pros. In this year’s winning imagery, we see the normally invisible hairs that cover a wasp’s shell rendered in brilliant detail; our wild and ravaging coastline depicted from a new vantage point above; and the command of the human eye depicted by way of a glance, a stare, and sometimes simply the lack thereof. Together, these images form an intimate look into the lives and landscapes shared by everyday New Zealanders. With the support of our premier sponsor Sigma, and category sponsors DJI, Epson, Ilford, Nikon, Nikon Keymission, Profoto, Progear, SAE Institute, and Tamron, we were able to offer the largest prize pool this competition has ever seen — nearly $19K’ worth of prizes. Including both latest-release and long-loved gear from all the best photographic brands, the prize pool up for grabs was enough to make any photographer’s mouth water. Congratulations to the winning images of our 2017 Sigma Amateur Photographer of the Year competition.
