£2000 cash first prize – “Deserted Places”

Following the success of our previous contests we have now secured the support of six sponsors resulting in a greatly increased prize bundle. The theme of this contest is "Deserted Places" which is open to interpretation but we would particularly like to see images of urban or rural decay such as disused buildings, derelict sites, abandoned cemetaries, ancient ruins, "haunted houses" and the like. So get snapping but don't have nightmares!




First Place: £2000 cash, free copy of ON1 Photo Raw 2017, free 12 month Skillshare scholarship, £60 Bob Books voucher.
Second Place: £200 cash, free copy of ON1 Photo Raw 2017, free Topaz software add-ons.
Third Place: £100 cash, $50 Rocky Nook gift card.


Amateur or professional, over 18, worldwide except where prohibited by law.
