2017 Sigma Amateur Photographer of the Year


Amateur and enthusiast photographers from all around the country have gathered their best images and submitted them to the expert judgement of our panel of industry leaders — Brett Stanley, Charles Howells, Katherine Williams, Kaye Davis, Mark Gee, Michael Miller, Richard Wood, Peter Robertson, and Simon Devitt.

For several years, the Sigma Amateur Photographer of the Year has been the country’s largest amateur photography contest and certainly the most popular online gallery of its kind. Each year, the quantity of entries increases, and so, too, the calibre of images improves. 2017’s contest received a record 9337 submissions across the 11 categories, many of which prove that advanced photographic technologies and techniques, such as focus stacking, aerial imaging, and timelapse, are no longer reserved for the pros.
