Sigma D-Photo Amateur Photographer of the Year competition open for 2015
The annual Sigma D-Photo Amateur Photographer of the Year competition is open to submissions. This year has seen a great level of support for the competition from companies within the photographic community, in the form of category sponsorship. This year’s categories include Creative, sponsored by White Studios; Landscape, sponsored by ProGear; Monochrome, sponsored by Ilford; Nature, sponsored by Vanguard; People, sponsored by Profoto; and Travel, sponsored by Momento. And there’s a brand-new category aimed to inspire young and emerging artists to get involved. The Junior category is open to 16–24-year-olds, and is sponsored by the Universal College of Learning (UCOL). We’re excited to see what this category brings to the table, considering last year’s overall competition winner was Edin Whitehead, who was just 20 years old at the time. The latest category inclusion is Action, sponsored by GoPro.
Entries are open until June 15, 2015, and the gallery of submissions and the entry form are located at dphoto.co.nz/apoty.
