In response to requests from several photo societies and schools, the organisers have agreed to extend the closing date for the York Photographer of the Year 2013 competition to early in January 2014.
The details below are unchanged, apart from the closing date, and the winners' exhibition date (now in late January 2014).
York is one of the most visited cities in the world. So if you have a great shot that captures something of the city, here's your chance to compete for the title of York Photographer of the Year.
The competition is being launched by York's fastest-growing website, YorkMix.com, and there are cash prizes, and First Class East Coast rail tickets to be won.
The competition has an Open category, any age, amateur or professional, for photographers living anywhere in the UK.
There are sub-category prizes for Under-18s, and York-based photographers.
Chair of the judges is Allan Harris [Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/allan_harris/sets/72157606723668139/ ], president of York Photographic Society. There are also separate awards and Commended certificates for pictures with strong editorial content (winners to be selected by YorkMix.com editor).
In an innovative move, the competition will also award at least one People's Prize, to be voted on by readers of the website. These will be selected from a separate shortlist decided by the judging panel.
The only condition is that the picture must have been taken in York, since September 7 last year (2012).
Judges will be looking for an image that captures something of the spirit of this diverse city that is steeped in history.
Entry is online only and there is a minimal £2 submission fee for up to three pictures [via PayPal or ccard]. You can enter as many times as you wish, up to three images in each £2 submission.
Closing date is now January 6, 2014. Winners will be featured on the website, and may also be featured on the website of East Coast railway company which runs most main line trains to York.
A major exhibition of winners and commended entries will take place in late January at the City Screen Sky Gallery.
