Potato Photographer of the Year 2020

Fun competition in aid of an important cause

Closes: 30 June 2020

Fun competition in aid of an important cause

The Potato Photographer of the Year is an exciting new photo competition open to anyone with an interest in photography and potatoes.

All proceeds from the competition will go towards the Trussell Trust who support a nationwide network of food banks that provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty.

While you’re stuck at home in this period of lockdown, why not flex your creative muscles and see how you can artistically capture the beauty of a potato? Demonstrate the simplicity of a King Edward, the gentle curves of a Yukon Gold or the marvels of the Maris Piper.

There’s a chance to win some great prizes and all proceeds will go to help the Trussell Trust provide food for people in need at this time of crisis. In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. The Trussell Trust supports over 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face. Between April 2018 and March 2019, food banks in their network provided a record 1.6 million food supplies to people in crisis, a 19% increase on the previous year.

There are over £1,000 of prizes. Including a Fujifilm X-A7, a year’s membership of the Royal Photographic Society, a one to one workshop with photographer Benedict Brain and a 3 years of Photocrowd master-level subscription.

An expert panel of judges including Martin Parr, Paul Hill, Nigel Atherton, Angela Nicholson and, RPS workshop tutor and Distinctions Panel member, Benedict Brain.

The awards are open to anyone aged 13 and over worldwide. A single image entry costs £5 (GBP) and you can enter up to eight images.
