Open Judging Results

This is the UK NATIONAL ROUND of the EISA Maestro Photo Contest 2019. To enter this contest you must be a UK resident.

We want to see your best shots responding to the theme of Power. Unlike most competitions that are based on a single image, we want to see a portfolio of 5-8 images that demonstrate your skill as a photographer that interprets the word Power. This Portfolio contest is expert judged only with the first-place winner going on to be included in the International EISA Maestro competition!

The winner will be put forward for the final round of the EISA Maestro Photo Contest 2019, where there's over €3,000 cash plus other prizes to win.

Prize details

UK NATIONAL ROUND The winner of the UK National Round of 'Power', as decided by the Amateur Photographer magazine editorial team, will be put forward for the final round of the EISA Maestro Photo Contest 2019, alongside other winners chosen by photography magazines around Europe. You'll also win a year-long subscription to Amateur Photographer magazine.

The first, second and third-prize winners will be published in Amateur Photographer in a June or July issue.

FINAL ROUND The winning entries from each of the 16 participating EISA countries will be judged together at the Association’s General Meeting in June 2019.

All three winners will be invited to Berlin at the official EISA Awards ceremony.

1st prize: €1,500 and EISA Maestro Trophy 2nd prize: €1,000 and EISA Maestro Trophy 3rd prize: €750 and EISA Maestro Trophy

All National Maestro winners will also be published on Facebook at the end of June for the EISA Public’s Choice competition. The prize for the winner here is €1000.
