Our Junior Jurors

Our preliminary selection process involves our talented junior jurors who carefully evaluate all submissions and choose the most outstanding photos and disqualify those that don’t meet the criteria. These selected entries will then proceed to the second round, where a panel of professional photographers will determine their favourite shots.
