Head here for all the details on how to get involved.
This week’s feature image is from Gary Hibbert @Galerie167 in the Enthusiast category: ‘Checking out the competition… Mathieu van der Poel leads the peloton through the rain. A day when even the strong men were beaten.’
After the competition closes our panel of professional photographer judges – Pauline Ballet, Simon Wilkinson, and Chris Auld – will deliberate on who’ll take out the honours, along with prizes from our generous sponsors:
Entry into the fiercely-contested Professional category is permitted for anyone who earns a living from his or her cycling photography. Entrants this year will be competing for the coveted title of Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year, with the winner taking home $2,500 AUD in cash.
For non-professional photographers using high-end cameras, we have the Enthusiast category. It’s a loose description including entries taken on high-end cameras including Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC), mirrorless, film, compact, DSLR and other cameras.
The SmartPhone / Action Cam category refers to still photos taken on devices such as iPhones, Android, Windows Mobile, etc, as well as still photos from devices such as GoPro, Shimano Sports Cam, Garmin VIRB, and drones.
