Amateur Photographer magazine is a well-known photography magazine based in the United Kingdom. It has been in publication for many years and is targeted towards amateur photographers, providing them with tips, techniques, gear reviews, and inspiration to improve their photography skills.
Amateur Photographer is a British photography magazine, published weekly by Kelsey Media. The magazine provides articles on equipment reviews, photographic techniques, and profiles of professional photographers.
Amateur Photographer was first published on 10 October 1884 by Hazell, Watson, and Viney, making it nearly 140 years old. Some of the most renowned photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz, Frank Meadow Sutcliffe, David Bailey, and Bob Carlos Clarke have written for the magazine over the years.
This magazine is now owned by Kelsey Media which acquired it (with World Soccer) from Future plc after Future acquired TI Media, the previous owner of the magazine.
APOY is an annual competition run by Amateur Photographer and is open to anyone who earns less than 10% of their yearly salary from photography. Each year’s competition is run every month, with each month having a dedicated “theme” for the images to adhere to. The APOY judges then narrowed the entries down to a short list of 50. From there, the final ‘Top 30’ are awarded points and published in the magazine; with the top three places being awarded prizes donated by Canon UK. All 30 point-scoring photographers are entered into the league table; which is edited after each round. After all ten rounds, the photographer with the highest score in the league table is crowned the Amateur Photographer Of the Year.
