Growing in reputation since its launch in 2019, ROSL PHOTO 23 is a truly unique international photography competition offering a free to enter opportunity to submit up to five images from any image making camera source; from mobile phone and digital camera to scanned negatives.

This year promises to be the best yet with an exceptional competition judging panel from across the photographic industry - whether you are submitting an entry or awaiting the shortlist exhibition at ROSL in December 2023 - the theme viewpoint certainly is appropriate.
