Annual Individuals Competition 2021 & Young Photographer of the Year

We cordially invite you to participate in the L&CPU Annual Individuals Competition, incorporating Young Photographer of the Year, to be held on Saturday 8th May and Sunday 9th May 2021.

Historically this competition has allowed 4 colour, 4 mono and 4 nature images in both PDI and Print sections ie a total of 24 images.  

The Competition Subcommittee has considered the difficulty in managing a print competition along with the difficulty in being able to travel and take new and original images for use in this and future events – hence the amendment to the rules for 2021 Individuals competition.


Full rules & guidelines will follow but below is a summary of changes made for 2021:

  • The competition will be hosted as an on-line event via Zoom, details of the entry process and rules will be posted shortly
  • The competition will be PDI entry only
    • Colour & Mono section – up to 12 images can be entered into this section
    • Nature section – up to 6 images can be entered into this section
      • A total of 18 images per individual photographer
