The Times Young Photographer Award

The Times has launched the ninth Times Young Photographer of the Year Award. The competition, which for the second year running is sponsored by Canon, seeks to find the country’s best young photographer.

The winner will win a six-month full-time contract with The Times, where they will be trained in the skills of photojournalism.

Each of the six finalists will also receive a year’s membership to the British Press Photographer’s Association.

The finalists will have their work displayed at Canon’s Pro Photo Solutions exhibition at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London on October 26 and 27. The winner will be unveiled there in a reception hosted by the Editor of The Times.

The winner will be someone who can show flair and imagination – whose work is visually exciting.
