This free-to-enter category is part of the Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2022 awards, open to photographers aged 13-21.
Our options for travel have been severely curtailed in the past couple of years, but there’s still plenty of scope in this round – however near or far the place you are photographing may be from your own home. Visiting somewhere new can really get the creative juices flowing, and photographing the buildings, landmarks, and people you encounter will help to convey the real spirit of a place. Get up early and visit a local market or stay out late and shoot lights reflected in water. Talk to people – a smile can go a long way towards securing willing subjects. Try not to ‘steal’ a shot; be patient and courteous.
There are £3,000 (GBP) worth of vouchers to win in Young APOY 2022, supplied by sponsors, MPB, plus the title of Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2022. Click the 'Prize details' tab for more information.
The winner of each round in Young APOY 2022 will take home a £250 (GBP) voucher from MPB, and will be crowned Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2022.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
