We’re excited to announce the launch of the next Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year competition with a £7,750 prize fund sponsored by MPB.com.
The competition takes place over the 12 months of 2023 with a different theme each month. Every month the Camera Jabber team will pick one winning image and nine runners up. The photographer of the winning image will receive a voucher from MPB.com to the value of £500 which can be spent on anything from a huge range of kit from the World’s biggest platform for used photographic gear.
All 10 images selected each month will then go into the shortlist (of 120) that will be judged by an esteemed panel of judges who will select the first, second and third-placed images. We’ll be announcing the VIP panel of judges soon.
Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year Prizes
In addition to the monthly prize awarded to the Camera Jabber team’s favourite image each month, at the end of the year, the judging panel will select their favourite images from the 120 images shortlisted throughout the year.
At the end of the year, the photographer of the first-placed image overall, as decided by the panel of judges, will receive a voucher to the value of £1000 from MPB.com as well as a trophy and the title ‘Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year 2023‘. The photographers who come second and third will receive vouchers worth £500 and £250 respectively.
You don’t have to enter the competition every month, but you are welcome to do so and the more shortlisted images you have at the end of the year, the greater than chance of winning the top prize.
Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year 2023/24 round one: Winter
The first round of the new Camera Jabber of the Year competition is now open for entries.
The theme for the first round, which runs until 23:59 GMT (00:59 CET and 15:59 PST) on 31st January, is ‘Winter’.
Winter can seem a very bleak time, but it’s also wonderfully photogenic and there are lots of suitable subjects such as frosty landscapes, snowball fights, wintery details and cosy fireside scenes.
You can submit up to three entries for £2.00 plus payment processing costs (£0.26). Images should be Jpegs and at least 1920 pixels along their longest side but no larger than 1MB.
