APOY 2013 consists of ten monthly rounds from February until November. The competition is open to all amateur photographers and each month’s round follows a distinct theme. After the closing date of each round, the entries are narrowed down to a shortlist of 50, then the top 30, and finally the top three. Points are awarded to each image for creativity, technical excellence and how well the image fulfils the brief. Judges are looking for original, imaginative and well-executed pictures that explore the theme in an exciting way. The names of the top 50 photographers from each round appear on our website, along with the images from the top 30. The top 30 images are also published in the magazine at the end of the month. After the ten rounds, the person with the most points accumulated over all the rounds will be crowned Amateur Photographer of the Year 2013.
