The Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2016 is now accepting entries. We’ve again teamed up with Fjällräven to make this 6th OPOTY competition more compelling than ever. The overall winner will be off on an Arctic photography mission to capture the drama and action of the Fjällräven Polar 2017 expedition!

The Competition categories are: Outdoor Photographer of the Year, Light On The Land, Wildlife Insight, Live The Adventure, At The Water’s Edge, Small World, Spirit Of Travel, Under Exposed, and Young Outdoor Photographer of the Year.


The Outdoor Photographer of the Year overall winner will be heading to the Arctic on assignment to photograph the Fjällräven Polar dog sled expedition in April 2017! Category winners will receive a superb Fjällräven Kånken No. 2 Black Edition backpack and £200. The overall winner will be supplied with almost all the outdoor equipment, food and clothing they need for the expedition; he or she will just need to take their camera gear and a carry-on bag of personal items.


Amateur, student and professional photographers, resident in the UK or abroad, of any age, are eligible to enter.
