Rugby Photographer of the Year is a competition that will celebrate the very best of rugby photography, both amateur and professional, culminating in a two-month exhibition at the World Rugby Museum at Twickenham.
Are you a professional or amateur photographer that loves capturing the moments, the people, the places that make rugby the sport it is? Then you should enter our inaugural Rugby Photographer of the Year competition.
A grand prize of £1,000 is also awarded for the overall winner at a finalist awards evening at the World Rugby Museum in late May, 2020.
An image of any individual involved in the game: player, coach, volunteer or spectator.
A picture that is as much about the setting as the game itself, that gives a sense of place.
