The Documentary Photographer of the Year (DPOTY) competition is organised by the Royal Photographic Society's Documentary Group. It runs every two years. The competition has been running since 2012 and provides an opportunity to showcase documentary work and storytelling.
Anyone of any age can submit their images to DPOTY - this includes student, amateur and professional photographers and story-telling image-makers worldwide. There is no theme or topic, so the choice of subject matter is yours. There is also no limit on when the images were taken. Just show us your best work.
Entry is made online using our submission platform. After the closing date, the online selection is made and final judging will take place in September and October. Entrants remain anonymous throughout the selection process.
Deadline: 5. August 2021
