About The Competition

RPS Members - Monthly Photo Competition

Experiment with photography and new ideas and share your results. Open to all RPS Members, a different theme features every month, with 3 overall winners; 2 chosen by the RPS Staff and 1 voted by you – the membership. 

Firstly you need to register to create a competition account, then you can enter your 5 images each month that relate to the theme. 

The only information you need to supply for registration and create your account is your membership number, email, name and country. If you hold any RPS Distinctions, just add them after your surname when you register (or add them later in your account). Then that's it, you are ready to upload images.

Use the description boxes to offer a bit more information about your entries. You could use this to describe the process or idea behind your image and it also provides a great space to explain a series or body of work.

To view your entries, see the All Images section and your images should appear alongside all of the entries so far. 


Choosing the Winners

At the end of each monthly competition, RPS Staff will shortlist a number of images which will then appear under Finalists. The opportunity is then open to you to Vote for the images you like the most. Voting will remain open for 2 weeks from the day the finalists are announced.

A total of 3 selected images will be chosen as the overall monthly winners and will include the image that received the highest vote.

Winners will be announced in the e-RPS newsletter and will appear on this site under Finalists > Award Winners Gallery, so remember to check and see if you're our monthly winner!
