English History Category, Historic Photographer of the Year

The second Historic Photographer of the Year Awards is open to amateur and professional photographers around the world. Historic England is proud to be partnering to create a new English History category which celebrates our unique and incredible historic environment.

Following the huge success of its first year, the Awards celebrate the very best historic places and cultural sites across the globe, from the most famous national treasures to the most obscure hidden gems.
