The judging for this year’s IWPOY will be going ahead shortly in January. Due to certain difficulties it had to be delayed this year and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience.
The standard of entries has been exceptionally high and we are very much looking forward to displaying the shortlisted entries and even more to viewing the judge’s winning entries.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year and assure you that the IWPOY competition will once again be underway very soon.
Unfortunately due to lack of entries the Isle of Wight Young Photographer of the Year My Life, My Island competition has been cancelled!
The main aim of the Young Photographer of the Year competition was to encourage those under 16 yrs to get out and about on the Island so that we could showcase just what the Isle of Wight has to offer. Unfortunately although we received over 30 registrations from those under 16 yrs the majority did not submit their entries into the specific My Life, My Island Category.
Thank you to those who participated, but sadly there can be no prize award, as it would be unfair to award any prestigious title based on so few entries.
However, we intend to ask the Judges if they will choose three of the best images currently contained in the My Life, My Island Gallery, and they will be exhibited in the IWPOY Wall of Fame along with the main IWPOY shortlisted entries at the Quay Arts in March 2011.
It is disappointing not enough entries were submitted in the youth section of the IWPOY photography competition. Despite this we are happy to have tried and hopefully will re-launch Young IWPOY again in 2011.
The IWPOY 2010 – Elements – earth : wind : fire : water closes for entries at 11.59 pm this evening (20th November 2010).

The IWPOY is the largest photography competition on the Isle of Wight and is open to all amateur or professional photographers that reside on the Island.
Entry into the competition is FREE! There are presently two categories to choose from, which we feel cover all bases of photographic genre. The main IWPOY category open to all is Earth Wind Fire and Water and this year we launch the Isle of Wight Young Photographer of the Year My Life, My Island for under 16 yrs.
We have some new and exciting plans in the pipeline for later this year; details are under wraps but watch this space.
