Time is flying – and looking back on this week we showcase the fourth week of the 2019 Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year Awards. It’s a collection of this years images – we hope you’ll enjoy them.
The competition closes on January 5th, 2020, at which point our judges – Pauline Ballet, Simon Wilkinson, and Chris Auld – will deliberate on who’ll take out the honours and amazing prizes on offer. And of course, thanks to CyclingTips for promoting the Awards again.
Time is running out – get your entries in…. There’s only seven days left.

Entry into the fiercely-contested Professional Cycling Photographer category is permitted to anyone who earns a living from his or her cycling photography.
Jean-Pierre Ronco @imagewriterphotography: ‘As professional photographer, we really enjoy our work. Here is a photo of our main office, following cycling events in amazing location (Mt Buffalo – Victoria – Australia – March 2019). Yes, we are the lucky ones even if behind each photo, there is a lot of invisible work done.’
For non-professional photographers using high-end cameras, we have the Enthusiast category. It’s a loose description including entries taken on high-end cameras including Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC), mirrorless, film, compact, DSLR and other cameras.
The SmartPhone / Action Cam category refers to still photos taken on devices such as iPhones, Android, Windows Mobile, etc, as well as still photos from devices such as GoPro, Shimano Sports Cam, Garmin VIRB, and drones.
