Who can enter?

ABF-TSC-Photographic-Competition-PosterThe competition is open to anyone with a connection to the Army. Winners will not only feature in the 2016 calendar but also receive a range of photography prizes.

Major General (Ret’d) Martin Rutledge, Chief Executive of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity said: “There are many budding photographers within the Army family so we thought this would be a great opportunity to showcase their talents. We’re really looking to forward to seeing some great entries.”

A tough decision

The winning entries will be chosen by a panel of leading figures including actress Jenny Agutter, Royal Photographer Arthur Edwards, Major General (Ret’d) Rutledge and Chief of General Staff, Lieutenant General Nick Carter.

Arthur Edwards added: “It will be fascinating to see how the breadth of the Army family is captured in this competition and I think we will see a very high calibre of entries.

“It will make it all the harder to narrow down the winners, but I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”

Get focused

The competition closes on 30 April 2015 and entries will be shortlisted before being put forward to the judging panel, with the winners announced at the end of May 2015.
