Open Judging Results

Sports photography can produce great shots, but has a bunch of challenges associated with it. It usually pays to get close to the action, which is more difficult if you’re watching professional sport, and finding the right angles to shoot from is key. Depending on the sport there might be an element of repetition which can allow you to hone your settings and see what’s working well, and learning how to use your camera’s autofocus settings is critical for most sports. Ball sports covers many of our favourite sports, and images don’t necessarily need to show the ball in the frame.

This Premium Contest is worth 3x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
