A passion for photography often starts at a young age. The Youth competition, for all photographers aged 12-19, recognises this next generation of talented young photographers.

The competition helps young photographers grow and flourish into the next stages of their careers. Judges are looking for good composition, creativity and clear photographs.

This year, we are asking our young photographers to respond to the brief: Beauty

The definition of ‘beauty’ is “the quality of being pleasing, especially to look at, or someone or something that gives great pleasure, especially when you look at it.” In your photograph the judges are looking to see what you consider to be ‘beauty’. Take the word in its widest form – from environment to people, animals to still life.

In addition to the main prizes, all winning and shortlisted photographers will be included in a global press campaign, featured across the World Photography Organisation website and exhibited at Somerset House, London in Spring 2017.

The judges will award:

1 Youth competition winner
Up to 10 shortlisted photographers
Up to 40 commended photographers

"After becoming the Youth competition winner, my life completely changed. It gave me a whole new energy to start believing in this career.” - Alecsandra Raluca Dragoi, 2013 Youth Competition winner

Closing date: January 5, 2017 - 11:59pm GMT

Please note
All submitted images must have been taken in 2016.
To enter the Youth competition you must be aged between 12-19 on the closing date.
