Celebrating close-up, macro & micro photography

Close-up Photographer of the Year (CUPOTY) is a celebration of close-up, macro and micro photography – an annual competition created to showcase images that help us see the world anew.
But its scope is far greater than that.
Its ultimate aim is to encourage you to slow down, enjoy the craft of photography, and to make connections with others who are equally passionate about the world up close.
