Part of Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021

Open Judging Results

We’ve all had plenty of opportunity to hone our home-photography skills over the past few months. Now’s your chance to submit them in our dedicated Home round. Anything taken at home is fair game here, whether that’s portraits of your nearest and dearest (including pets), food, close-ups, flowers from the garden, and beyond to include more creative and unusual skills such as abstracts and smoke trails. This is a broad subject with 1000s of different possibilities – it just needs to have been taken in your home.
