These judges will study the finalists of each round and determine the winners.

It’s all in the details…

The first round in the 2019 competition is all about the details. We’re looking for the gorgeous macro shots, the delicate details of the flowers, the finery of the wedding dress, those all-important wedding rings.

On a day so big and so full of excitement, it’s important to capture these little aspects so the happy couple can treasure and relive everything from their special day. We want to see how you perfectly capture those moments in your own unique style.

Here’s how you enter

To enter the first round, just upload your file before Tuesday 14th of May. Remember, you can only enter one image per round, so make sure you’ve selected your best detail shot. The winner of this first round will receive a 30-page spread 14×10″ Bellissimo album of their choice.

The winner of each round will be in contention for the overall prize of £1,000 Loxley Colour lab credit and an exclusive feature about you in Professional Photo magazine.

The results of this round will be announced in issue 67 of Photography News, available from Tuesday 18th of June.
