A new competition called the Picture Editor's Guild Awards has been established to reward the best photo journalists.
With backing from SABMiller brewers, BT, Bloomberg, British Airways and Newscast, guild members will select winners from shortlisted photographers across seven categories.
An overall winner will become the SABMiller Photographer of the Year, receiving £1,000 and a trophy. Category winners will receive £500.
The winners will be announced on the 21 September at a gala presentation at the Honourable Artillery Company headquarters in London.
