Best of British

Part of Amateur Photographer of the Year 2022

Open Judging Results

This is the round where you can go all out and have fun. There are so many fantastic things that make Britain British, the biggest problem you’ll have is deciding what to photograph. You might choose to capture one of our stunning landscapes, or our native wildlife. Or there are the characterful people that make up the population, not to mention iconic landmarks that visitors the world over come to see. You might choose to photograph something more local, such as a quirky festival or tradition that’s part of the fabric of where you live. The possibilities are enormous, and we want to see vibrant, distinctive images that capture the uniqueness of these islands.
