History Hit's "Historic Photographer of the Year" competition is back once again this year. Find out more below and submit your entries!

Historic Photographer of the Year is back!

Last year we also helped judge competition, and this year, we're thrilled again that Focus' Editor and Picfair's Content Manager, Philip, will be helping judge the entries for this year too.

As the competition states, "the right shot at the right time can be a winning entry" - so we would encourage you to enter your best history-themed shots for the chance to win. See more information about the competition including terms and conditions on the History Hit website.

If you're looking for inspiration, take a look at some of the shortlisted entries below from last year's competition.
