The Animal Kingdom

In association with EISA Maestro

Open Judging Results

This is the UK national round of the EISA Maestro Photo Contest 2023. To enter this contest you must be a UK resident.

Submit a series of between 5 and 8 images on the theme of 'The Animal Kingdom'. Unlike most competitions that are based on a single image, we want to see a selection of images that should hang together as a coherent whole, for example telling a story.

Your subject matter may include any kind of animal, including wild and urban wildlife, pets, and farm animals.

All entries must be taken by you for the purposes of this competition. Existing portfolios are excluded.

Publication in Amateur Photographer magazine for the Top 3, and for the winner a digital AP subscription and put forward to the final round of the EISA Maestro Photo Contest 2023, where there's over €4,250 cash prizes
