The first ever televised talent show for photography will be return, as Sky Arts has announced that Master of Photography has been renewed for a second series.

As the first series concludes tonight and chooses its winner, the network announced that it has ordered another run in 2017.

A call for entries to join the second series will open on 14 September on the Master of Photography website, and close on 31 October 2016.

The contest again will be open to both amateur and professional photographers across Europe who will compete for a €150,000 prize.

Over the past eight weeks, the 12 contestants on the first series have travelled to locations across Europe to shoot a series of challenges aimed at testing their ability, skill and instinct across a variety of photographic styles.

Four finalists – Gabriele Micalizzi (Italy), Marta Lallana Garcia (Spain), Rupert Frere (UK) and Yan Revazov (Russia) – were selected to compete in tonight’s final task that involved taking pictures on the theme ‘Europeans, Faces and Places’ in four different European cities using only three black-and-white rolls of analogue film.
