The Societies’ Photographer of the Year 2019

The Societies' Photographer of the Year 2019 Awards

2019 has been another incredible year for The Societies of Photographers’ Monthly Image Competition, with 11,320 images entered throughout the year. The 20×16″ Print Competition held during this year’s Convention had a fantastic range of entries and the quality was stunning. We would like to thank all the entrants to both the competitions.

Each of the categories from our Monthly Image Competition has nominees which have been chosen from the Gold Award winning images from 2019.

Throughout the year we use a group of Judges to do Qualifications, Monthly Image Competition judging, End of Year judging and 20×16″ Print Competition judging at The Convention. They give their time and expertise for nothing, and we at the Societies would like to thank the following Angela Adams, Rocco Ancora, Steve Allen, Imelda Bell, Kelly Brown, Duncan Cauchi, Sean Conboy, Jocelyn Conway, Terry Donnelly, Satnam Dosajh, Marko Dutka, Paulina Duzman, David Edmonson, Luke Edmonson, Peter Ellis, George Fairbairn, Sarah Ferrara, Tony Hewitt, Gary Hill, Gurvir Johal, Sanjay Jogia, Scott Johnson, Peter Jones, Christina Lauder, Claire Louise, Damian McGillicuddy, Gordon McGowan, Mike McNamee, Llewellyn Robins, Jennifer Rozenbaum, Ramon Sammut, Lenny Smith, David Stanbury, Louise Sumner, Andreas Tsiartas, Paul Wilkinson, Tracy Willis and Stuart Wood.

We would also like to thank Color Confidence for loaning us the monitors for the End of Year judging.
