RAF Photographer of the Year: 2019 Photographic Competition

9 December 2019 - 25 October 2020

The Royal Air Force Museum is celebrating the superb achievements of Royal Air Force Photographers following the judging of the Royal Air Force’s annual Photographic Competition.                              

Burn up, burn down  What am I??

We are now showing the winning entries of the 2019 Competition in a unique external display which opened to the public at the beginning of December. Visitors will be greeted with the competition's winning images as they make their way to the Museum's Main Entrance. 

Time for spaghetti Right in the kisser

Subject categories range from ‘The Operational Experience’, an image that reflects the Royal Air Force conducting vital work on operations or training in support of operations, through to the ‘Equipment’ category which gives photographers the exciting opportunity to display their skill photographing the Service’s world-class equipment. 

Remembrance  Ready for take off

Not to be missed, this exhibition is a visual feast for the eyes. Also on display will be the 'People's Photograph' as voted for by members of the public during summer 2019.
