This is how the competition works

Every month (May-October) participants can submit 1 photo using the contact form. Every month 2 nominees are chosen for the final.

  • 1x Jury winner
    The jury will select a monthly winner from all monthly submissions, who will be nominated directly for the final.
  • 1x Community winner
    5 more pictures will be selected and posted on Haukland's Instagram account. The community then has 24 hours to vote for each picture. The picture with the most likes will also be nominated for the final.

    In November, all 12 nominated monthly winners compete against each other in the final.

    • For each picture, both the jury and the community award points from 1-12.
    • First, the jury awards its points anonymously and not publicly.
    • Each jury member awards 12 points for their favorite picture and 1 point for their least preferred picture.
    • After that, the community can vote for each picture for 24 hours.
    • In community voting, the picture with the most likes after 24 hours receives 12 points. The picture with the fewest likes gets 1 point.
    • In the end, all points are added up. The participant with the most points wins.
    The Haukland Photographer of the Year will be announced on December 3rd, 2021 via the Haukland website and social media channels.
