Our international panel of selectors is ready to choose the winners:


Michael Pritchard

Dr Michael Pritchard FRPS is Chief Executive of The Royal Photographic Society.


Mark Thackara

A 30 plus year veteran at Olympus, Mark has worked on almost every area of the business including microscopes - the very first Olympus product 100 years ago. While privileged to have met many of photography’s big names, sadly their skill has not rubbed on his own picture taking but he still knows a good image when he sees one.

Today he looks after The PEN and TOUGH brands for Europe which delight consumers the world over. Olympus has a long history of celebrating photography and as more and more people discover the pleasure of image taking via their phones, more than ever the philosophy is to help people develop that enjoyment.
