Contest Information

For the 14th time, SAFRA Photographic Club is championing the SAFRA Photographer of the Year 2018 from August 2018 to January 2019. A photo-marathon will be organised for the first time on March 2019, in conjunction with the final prize presentation ceremony.

This year, we have also introduced new modern themes and refreshed our competition format to attract more participation from the youths and amateurs. We will also conduct monthly workshops to hype up the photography arena.

August sees the launch of the 14th SAFRA Photographer of the Year (14PTY) competition.

In this edition, a new challenge awaits participants!

There will still be be six themes to select four. But, the six themes will be made known on a monthly basis.

The first phase of the competition will be the Monthly Theme challenge. Every month from August, a theme will be assigned. Participants can submit their entires (up to three images per participant) within the month, to be judged after the closing on the last day of the month. Monthly prizes will be awarded. (Although the participant's name will not be announced, the winning images will be displayed.)

Upon completing the six monthly themes, participants who have submitted to at least four monthly themes will be invited to consolidates their entires and nominate he sets of four images from different themes to the second phase PTY challenge.

Set of four must be images submitted in the first phase, of different themes. Each image can only be used in one set of four.

So, if you are ready, the first theme is "MOTION" for August. You may now register yourself for the competition at to upload your images. Closing date for this month is 31 Aug 2018.

Theme for September is "SAND". Submission begins on 1 Sept 2018.
