Barclays is bringing back its contest aimed at football photographer with the top prize comprising £10,000 worth of photographic equipment. However, shooters must be willing to see their images displayed in Barclays branches before entering the competition
Barclays is offering £10,000 worth of photographic equipment to the best football photographer of the season in a competition aimed at "capturing the moments of success and failure, and the essence and emotion of Barclays Premier League Football".
The photographer of the season will be judged on five submitted images, while the winner of the Shot of the Season category will receive £5000 worth of equipment.
The awards are now in their eighth year and are open to all professional photographers worldwide. Barclays has also told BJP that while photographers will keep all of their copyrights, they have to agree that Barclays will be able to use their shots for limited purposes. "We usually send out the shortlisted entrants to media, and then we put together a book of the best images from the season," says James Knott, who oversees the awards. "Occasionally some of the images are used in in-branch displays or in headquarters just to add a bit of visual stimulation and/or to promote the start of the following season."
To enter, contact James Knott at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for entries is 03 June.
