The PPY is a UK competition and as such has specific entry criteria. To avoid any disappointment please take care to read the rules!
Entries were welcomed from professional photographers based in the United Kingdom (irrespective of their nationality) however, those who are not UK based MUST either be working predominantly for the UK media or be UK or ROI citizens.
The 2013 competition has a more extended time frame for eligible images than seen in previous years. This is to take into account the time that has passed since the 2011 competition.
The jury will consider this when making their deliberations, and although there will not be separate awards made in each category per se, the jury may decide to make extra awards if they feel the entries merit them to cover the two year period.
All photographs entered must have been taken between 1st January 2011 and 31st January 2013 inclusive. Each of the categories will accept a greater number of entries to take account of this. They do not need to have been published.
Entries and new registrations were accepted from
Monday 14th January.
The closing date was midnight on
Saturday 2nd February.
