Entries are still being accepted for the Rail Camera Club’s free competition for railway photographers aged under 26 to showcase their work.
The competition is supported by Network Rail, the National Railway Museum, Jessops, Mortons Media (The
Railway Magazine, Rail Express, Heritage Railway, Railways Illustrated), Silver Link Publishing, Bauer Media and others.
The theme for entries is ‘The railway seen’, showing the diversity of the current railway scene. This could
mean steam, diesel or electric trains, architecture, people, landscapes, or abstract image.
All entries must have been taken since January 1, 2019 from a safe, public location. Photographers must be 25 and under on the closing date of October 31, 2021.
There is one category for 18s and under, one for 19-25 year-olds, plus an overall winner will also be chosen.
There is a great range of prizes available, including visiting the top of the Forth Railway Bridge, camera
equipment, photography courses, magazine subscriptions, railway experiences and books.
Judging will take place in November, and prizes will be announced at an awards night ceremony, currently planned to be held in York in February 2022.
A selection of the best entries will be made into a book published by Mortons Media, which will be launched at the awards ceremony.
For more details and full terms and conditions, see the dedicated Young Rail Photographer of the Year website.
