History's Short Filmmaker of the Year

Your chance to see your short film broadcast on TV



Historic Photographer of the Year showcases the world’s very best historic places and cultural sites from across the globe, capturing everything from the most famous national treasures to obscure and forgotten hidden gems.

Following the phenomenal success of the 2018 Awards, Historic Photographer of the Year challenges photographers everywhere, amateur or professional, to explore and share the most astonishing imagery of those places which dominate our past. Whether it’s a ruined English castle, an underground Roman villa or the haunting beauty of a long-forgotten battlefield, historical sites are among the most picturesque places to photograph on Earth.

Judging all entries will be a panel of experts including Claudia Kenyatta, Director of Regions for Historic England, broadcaster and historian Dan Snow of History Hit TV, head of the television channel HISTORY™ Dan Korn, author and digital colourist Marina Amaral, Chairman of The Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography Richard Everett, and co-founder of Trip Historic Elli Lewis. Entries will be judged on originality, composition and technical proficiency alongside the story behind the image and its historical impact.

The 2019 Awards are now closed for entries and winners will be announced in November.
