The Wisden – MCC Cricket Photograph of the Year competition was launched in 2010.
It is open to all photographers – amateur and professional – from across the world with the only stipulations that entries must have been taken during the year of the competition and in some respect have a cricket theme.
The winner and two runners-up are featured in the colour photo section of the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, and since 2012 the eleven shortlisted photos have been displayed at Lord's during the following season.
The winner of the 2013 competition was announced on Wednesday 9 April 2014 as Atul Kamble, for his stunning image of Sachin Tendulkar before the Indian legend's final Test innings.
The 2014 competition is now open for entries, with a £2,000 first prize, £1,000 for the two runners-up and £250 for the other shortlisted images. The closing date for entries is 4 January 2015.
