APOY Amateur Photographer of the Year 2020

Over £10,000 of prizes


Amateur Photographer magazine invites amateur photographers from around the world to enter its annual competition and the chance to win the title of ‘Amateur Photographer of the Year 2020’.

Amateur Photographer is the world’s oldest consumer weekly photographic magazine, first published in October 1884. Since then, AP (as it is affectionately known to its readers) has been the bible for both amateur and professional photo-enthusiasts around the world. It has helped generations of photographers to improve their skills.

Look out for AP in your newsagent on sale EVERY week, so it’s always the first with the latest news and reviews on cameras and equipment as well as the largest and most up-to-date marketplace for buyers and sellers.

Amateur Photographer magazine is also available in digital format, for your iPad or mobile device: in iTunes, Kindle, Nook, Google Play and Zinio.


The overall winner will be awarded the coveted title ‘Amateur Photographer of the Year 2020’, and Sigma equipment of their choosing worth £2,000. The expert judged winner of each round (as voted by the AP team of experts) will win Sigma equipment of their choice, up to a value of £1,000 (based on Sigma’s RRP) and the crowd vote winner of each round will win a one-year digital subscription to the magazine and a one year Master subscription to Photocrowd.


The 8 categories are open to Amateur* photographers of all ages and nationalities.
