How to win the competition: Advice from the judges

Mike Trow, Chair, Professional competition 

'Pick your stories carefully, see how they fit with your belief structures. Research the story, and other people's work in the area, and then shoot it. Be ruthless in your editing and quality control, and be consistent in the presentation of images. 

'And always get the opinion of others – how they see things is not necessarily how you see it and will help give objectivity to the sense of whether your pictures work or not.' 

Sue Davies OBE, Juror, Professional competition

'Enter something you believe in and that you think we would appreciate and believe in too.' 

Dewi Lewis, Juror, Professional competition

'For me the most important thing is that a photographer develops their own voice – that their individual qualities and personality comes through.

This ultimately means finding a theme a subject that they really believe in and that they really care about.' 

Gareth Harris, Juror, Professional competition

 'Don't replicate anyone else's style. (too much).'

Zelda Cheatle, Chair, Open, Youth & National Awards competitions 

'Be sincere, think about the message within your work, keep it simple and work from the heart.'
