From the awards website: “The Awards offer a window to the history which exists all around us; to hardcore history enthusiasts or those that simply wish to capture wonderful imagery of incredible places from our past. Truly great images of historical sites can change the way people look at the world, whether it’s a picturesque English castle or a ruined Roman villa, they can challenge opinion and stimulate debate.
Commenting, judge Dan Snow said: “historical photography is about seeking out a great subject, getting up ridiculously early, climbing high and waiting. Real history doesn’t always have to be a museum or gallery. It can be a proper adventure out to the middle of nowhere, where you stumble across decaying remnants of the past. The best history photography often captures sites which may be entirely lost to our grandchildren.”
Entries have been judged on originality, composition and technical proficiency alongside the story behind the image and its historical impact.
Judging all entries is a panel of experts including broadcaster and historian Dan Snow, VP Programming and Head of HISTORY Dan Korn, All About History Magazine Editor-in-Chief James Hoare and David Gilbert, Chair of Creative United.”
