Regional press photographers are being urged to enter an annual competition showcasing their best royal and political pictures.
NMA member photographers from local and national publishers, and other members of the rota system including agencies and freelancers, are invited to submit their best photographs from Royal or political Rota engagements over the past year.
Martin Keene, Press Association group picture editor and member of the contest’s judging panel, said: “Pictures taken by photographers working as part of the Royal Rota appear almost every day in print and online around the country and across the world.
“The largely unseen work that the NMA do in running the rota is an essential part of the media landscape. I am looking forward to seeing some tremendous images.”
Images should be submitted before the deadline of 12pm on the 17 September, and the winners will then be announced in early October.
The NMA manages the Royal Rota on behalf of its members, allocating passes for the hundreds of Royal engagements undertaken by members of the Royal Family each year and ensuring that the material is pooled among members.
