History Hit’s historic Photographer of the Year competition returns for the second year in a row inviting photographers with a keen interest in things of the past. The prestigious award founded by TV historian Dan Snow is split into two categories: ‘Historic England’ and ‘World History” and seeks to recognize stunning photographs of famous historical sites and significant treasures all over the world.

To judge this year's competition Snow has enlisted the help of Marissa Roth, an internationally published and Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, and The Times picture editor, Andrew Hepburn. They join Snow, Claudia Kenyatta from Historic England, and Philip Mowbray from Picfair, to whittle down the 2023 submissions. The competition is open until 6pm BST on October 15.
