Historical Photographer of the Year

25 July 2017

Region: Headquarters

Historic Photographer of the Year calls on photographers from around the globe to explore and capture the very best historic places and cultural sites that the world has to offer. 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 Awards challenge photographers everywhere, amateur or professional, to explore and share the most astonishing imagery of those places which dominate our past. Entries will be judged on originality, composition and technical proficiency alongside the story behind the image and its historical impact. Judging all entries will be a panel of experts including broadcaster and historian Dan Snow, All About History Magazine Editor James Hoare and David Gilbert, Chair of Creative United.

Historic Photographer of the Year is a joint venture between two cultural brands, Trip Historic – the leading online travel guide to the world’s historic sites – and History Hit, which brings unique content and insight from some of the UK’s best known historians and academics. Official partners include The History Channel, The Royal Photographic Society and All About History magazine.

The winner will see their work showcased on the official competition website and will receive a cash prize of £2,500.
