The Wisden – MCC Cricket Photograph of the Year competition – until 5 January 2019

Deadline: 5 January 2019. The 2018 Wisden-MCC Cricket Photograph of the year competition is now open. All photographs entered must have been taken in the 2018 calendar year and should demonstrate the skill and artistry of the photographer. Images can be from anywhere in the world, and there is no restriction on subject matter as long as it has a cricket theme. Action shots, landscapes, portraits, images of dramatic or aesthetic appeal – all are equally welcome.


A shortlist of eleven entries will initially be chosen, from which a winner and two runners-up will be announced. First prize will be awarded £2000, two runners-up will each receive £1000, and the eight other shortlisted entries will get £250 each.

In addition to the cash prizes, the top three photographs will feature in the 2019 Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack, and all of the shortlisted entries will be exhibited at Lord’s throughout next year. The top three will also receive their own copy of the Wisden Almanack.
