The winner of each category will receive a photo commission to Mexico, courtesy of the Mexico Tourism Board and British Airways, plus a Nikon camera. The runners-up will also receive Nikon cameras, as will four highly commended shots.
In addition, a Portfolio category is open to amateurs and professionals, with a top prize of £5,000. Entrants must assemble five images, all themed to fit one of the four amateur categories. A runner-up prize of £1,000 plus a Nikon camera will be awarded.
