Whether it’s a ruined English castle, an underground Roman villa or the haunting beauty of a long-forgotten battlefield, historical sites are among the most picturesque places to photograph on Earth. The 2019 Awards launch for entries on 12th June 2018 and is open to amateur and professional photographers around the world.

The Awards challenge photographers everywhere, amateur or professional, to explore and share the most astonishing imagery of those places which dominate our past.
