Picture Editor's Guild Awards 2010

The dynamic and highly-competitive world of the professional press photographer has just got even more combative with this newly launched contest to reward the very best in picture journalism. Guild members, all picture editors working throughout Britain, have judged a variety of press photography competitions for two decades but the fast-changing media world has lacked a nationwide challenge of this calibre in recent years.

Adapting to the digital age, the competition will be hosted on a dedicated website with seven categories for all professional press photographers in the UK and Eire. An innovative eighth category - BT Citizen Photograph of the year - is also open to the public.

Backing for the new competition has come from the renowned international brewers SABMiller; leading telecoms company BT; the Bloomberg, financial software, news and data group; British Airways and Newscast, the visual images communications agency.

An overall winner will be honoured as the SABMiller Photographer of The Year and receive £1,000 and a trophy. Individual category winners will each receive £500 and a trophy.

The winners will be announced at a gala evening presentation on September 21st at the Honourable Artillery Company headquarters in the City of London.
