Last year it started in March and was held over 8 monthly rounds. Entry was via the Photocrowd website and there was a code published in the magazine for one free entry each month. It was also possible to buy up to three entries, although for those having more than one image ranked in the top 30 only the first counted towards their overall score. That was a rule change in response to what happened the previous year. The winner in 2017 was an excellent nature photographer who succeeded by dint of having more than one scoring image featuring his specialism in just a few of the rounds. He did not demonstrate mastery across a range of genres which the organisers were looking for.

There are no details yet for this year but information about last year's competition is still on the AP website. If it goes ahead, it is likely that the topics will be broadly similar. What I found last year was that there was overlap between some of the categories, with landscape images being prominent in the results of four of the rounds.

Thanks Mike - much appreciated.
I'll start picking up the mag - here's wishing you another very successful campaign; finishing overall 10th in 2018 was an impressive performance and I'm sure it'll not be a case of my 'hanging on to your coat tails' but more one of trying to keep your coat tails in view!
