We are accepting entries from Dec. 14, 2019, through our deadline on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020. Check out the 2020 POY Categories. We have changed a few things to make things easier to understand and reflect the spirit of the competition. Most notably, the Photographer of the Year no longer has a restriction regarding newspaper photographers. It now has local and international designations.POY is the oldest and most prestigious photojournalism program and competition in the world. Each year, POY recognizes excellence in photojournalism, multimedia, and visual editing. It is committed to engaging citizens worldwide with great documentary work by hosting educational programs and public exhibitions. POY believes it is critical for people to experience your coverage of news events and social issues facing our world. When you enter Pictures of the Year, your work is recognized worldwide and becomes part of our collective visual history.
