The Societies of Photographers’ Photographer of the Year 2021

The Societies’ Photographer of the Year 2021

2021 has been another incredible year for The Societies of Photographers’ Monthly Image Competition, with 6,636 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 2021.

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, Steve Allen, Imelda Bell, Duncan Cauchi, Sean Conboy, Jocelyn Conway, Terry Donnelly, Satnam Dosajh, Marko Dutka, David Edmonson, Luke Edmonson, Sarah Edmunds, Peter Ellis, Panikos Hajistilly, Gary Hill, Sanjay Jogia, Gurvir Johal, Scott Johnson, Christina Lauder, Claire Louise, Damian McGillicuddy, Gordon McGowan, Mike McNamee, Ramon Sammut, Lenny Smith, David Stanbury, Louise Sumner, Paul Wilkinson and Tracy Willis. Also, our Junior Judging team Richard Bradbury, Fiona Ingvarsson, Joe Lenton, Fiona McKean, Iain Poole, Andreas Tsiartas and Darren Whitely.
