Army Photographic Competition 2017

The annual Army Photographic competition is back this year with a new category called “OP Camera” which has previously not been open to the public.

“We’ve got great photographers in the Army,” said Command Master Photographer WO1 Will Craig, “but we realised that lots of other people have fabulous photos of what we do, including members of the public and our colleagues in the Royal Navy and the RAF.”

“This year we’re inviting everyone to enter. It’s your army, so let’s see the great pictures you’ve got.”

The Army has also created a special new category for cadet organisations called “Cadet Life” which is open to all young people in the Army Cadet Force or any section of the Combined Cadet Force.

In both categories, judges will be looking for high quality photographs that can be used to promote the Army across traditional and social media channels.

Running for more than 20 years, many of the entries have traditionally come from trained Army photographers from the Royal Logistic Corps.

“The advantage our photographers have is that, as soldiers first, they deploy on operations with other soldiers to capture life on front lines and training areas around the world,” said Mr Craig.

“But they can’t be everywhere, and we know lots of people take good photos of soldiers and what they do – and we’d love to see them.”

Other categories in the Army Photographic Competition – including video, for social media – remain open to any Regular Army and Army Reserve personnel, as well as cadets including the Army’s University Officer Training Corps. Ministry of Defence civilians who work directly for the Army can also enter.

The competition is also asking the public to vote for their favourite picture by following the Army channels on Facebook and Instagram.

Closing date for entries is 27 Sept 17. More info from www.army.mod.uk/photocomp
