CJPOTY Round one: New Beginnings

Win a voucher from MPB.com to the value of £500

CJPOTY Round 1 New Beginnings
News

The theme for the first round of the Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year (CJPOTY) competition is ‘New Beginnings’. We’ve chosen this for the first round because January is a time of year when we like to turn over a new leaf, look at things differently and start afresh. It’s also a great time to kickstart your photography by taking on a new project such as entering a competition each month!

The first round of our monthly competition is open for submissions until 18:00 GMT (19:00 CET and 10:00 PST) on 31st January.

We want to see your best images of anything that signifies a new start, whether that’s the sun rising on a new day, snowdrops emerging from the ground, a wedding or the start of a new adventure.

To submit your entry visit cjpoty.com. You can submit one image per entry but make up to three entries for £2.00 plus payment processing costs (£0.26).

Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year prizes

At the end of the month, the Camera Jabber team will pick one winning image and nine runners up from the January entries. The photographer of the winning image will receive a voucher from MPB.com to the value of £500 which can be spent on anything from a huge range of kit from the World’s biggest platform for used photographic gear.

All 10 of the selected images will go into our shortlist for the year.

We’ll do this each month in 2022 so that by the end of the year, there will be 120 shortlisted images. These will then go before our fantastic panel of judges who will decide the 1st, 2nd and 3rd-placed images.

The photographer of the first-placed image overall, as decided by the panel of judges, will received a voucher to the value of £1000 from MPB.com as well as a trophy and the title ‘Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year 2023‘. The photographers who come second and third will receive vouchers worth £500 and £250 respectively.

The judges are:

Ben Brain – Photographer, journalist & Sigma ambassador
Sophie Collins – Chief Marketing Office at MPB
Kate Hopewell-Smith – Wedding, portrait & boudoir photographer, Sony ambassador
Sanjay Jogia – Wedding photographer & Canon ambassador
Pete Reed OBE – Three times Olympic gold medal-winning rower and keen documentary photographer
Craig Strong – Lensbaby founder and photographer
Jeremy Walker – Landscape photographer, author & former Nikon ambassador

You don’t have to enter the competition every month, but you are welcome to do so and the more shortlisted images you have at the end of the year, the greater than chance of winning the top prize.
