Niche com­pe­ti­tions

Amateur Photographer - - Technique | Competition Tips -

If you still haven’t found a com­pe­ti­tion that suits your par­tic­u­lar in­ter­ests, why not con­sider some of the smaller, more niche com­pe­ti­tions? There are hun­dreds avail­able for your en­tries, and some don’t charge for en­tries. Here are some of our favourites.

Black+White Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year

Run in part­ner­ship with Fu­ji­film, Black+White Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year, as you may have guessed, cham­pi­ons all things mono­chrome. Prizes usu­ally in­clude the lat­est cam­era gear, and the com­pe­ti­tion is di­vided into cat­e­gories, with an over­all winner. See bpoty.com.

Com­edy Wildlife Pho­tog­ra­phy Awards

With a chance to win a once-ina-life­time sa­fari trip, the Com­edy Wildlife Pho­tog­ra­phy Awards are for the more amus­ing shots in your wildlife portfolio. En­try is free. You have un­til 30 June to sub­mit your en­tries. The web­site com­e­dy­wildlifephoto.com has all the de­tails.

Dog Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year

Run by the Ken­nel Club, Dog Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year cel­e­brates ev­ery­thing do­gre­lated. Split into var­i­ous cat­e­gories, the win­ning pho­tog­ra­pher’s pic­tures are dis­played at a pres­ti­gious ex­hi­bi­tion in May­fair, Lon­don; there is also an oil paint­ing of their win­ning im­age. Visit dog­pho­tog­ra­pheroftheyear.co.uk for more de­tails.

This im­age won the Oldies cat­e­gory in the 2017 Dog POTY
