The Photographic Angle regularly runs photographic competitions which are open and accessible to everyone, regardless of their location, ability, experience, equipment or age.

Each competition has a theme, chosen by our Head of Design, and we welcome submissions that illustrate this theme showcasing originality and a unique viewpoint. The competitions are free to enter and TPA enlists the help of an independent judge who is given the responsibility of selecting the winning entries. One photographer whose entry is deemed the best representation of the competition theme will be awarded a prize.

Throughout the year, our Head of Design will also choose a selection of the best entries submitted to various competition themes for inclusion in one of our future photographic exhibitions. The chosen images will then be printed by the charity and exhibited at no expense to the photographers. If your work is chosen for inclusion you will be contacted via email and asked to send us high resolution versions of your work.

Our new competition theme is ‘Forgotten’.

We forget things, things are left to rot, to decompose, to biodegrade. Some things are just left, to be covered up, eventually buried with the passing of time.

Sometimes people feel that they are forgotten, they sit alone with their memories, every line on their face, every twinkle in their eyes a testament to the life they have lived and the wisdom they now have, the stories they would love to tell, if there was someone who would hear them.

The challenge for this competition is for you to capture something or someone that has been forgotten and show us the beauty that can be found within it.
