About POTY

Consisting of five rounds throughout the season the annual Photographer of the Year (POTY) competition is a marathon rather than a sprint…! The winner is the NDPS member who obtains the highest aggregate score at the end of the competition in accordance with the rules.

Each round is judged by an independent judge from the current list of EAF registered judges.
