MCC and Wisden Cricket Photograph of the Year
Wisden, in partnership with MCC, is now launching an annual Cricket Photograph of the Year competition. The winning images will be chosen by a panel of independent expert judges appointed by Wisden and MCC and independent of outside influence.
The competition is open to all photographers – amateur and professional – throughout the world. The only stipulations are that entries must, in one way or another, have a cricket theme, and have been taken during 2010. Beyond that, there is no restriction whatever. Photographs may be from the beach, village green, maidan, street, stadium, snowfield – anywhere. Put simply, Wisden and MCC invite submissions of the most outstanding images of cricket captured in 2010.
The judges will draw up a shortlist from which they will select a winner and two runners-up. The chosen images will best capture the drama, spirit or essence of cricket, wherever in the world it is played, watched or experienced.
Each year, starting in the 2011 edition, the winning photographs will be the first three images in Wisden’s colour section.
Eleven shortlisted entries will be exhibited at Lord’s, and there will prizes for the top three photographs.
