Applications for the ‘Photographer of the Year’ award at The National Student Media Awards are now open.

Awarded to one individual for an outstanding sample of photography produced since February 2020. The judges will be looking for excellence in composition, subject matter and for startling images.

This category should not be confused with news photographer of the year. The work should either have been published in the student press OR be the work of a full-time student, in which case the work can be unpublished, but of publishable quality.

Last’s year winner, Juliana Falanghe, picked up this award for training her lens of the junk we throw away. Check out the full article here.

We’re so excited to see your submissions and best of luck at The National Student Media Awards 2021!
