For 2020/21 we have decided to make the judging criteria

75% Overall Physique and Conditioning
25% Looks and Marketability.

All judges will be informed.

The winner is decided by adding the final placings from the Public and Judging Rounds.
As in any Bodybuilding Contest the person with the lowest score wins. and made by our
judging panel and the Top 5 winners will be announced in reverse order at the end of
December. (European winners will be announced TBC)


Information Continued

Everyone entering will have the opportunity to be selected for our final top 20 athletes for
the public vote in December 2020 (TBC Europeans).

The payment of the fee (£20) and Entry to the competition does not guarantee that you will be
in the final selection. However anyone entering the competition will be promoted
throughout the year as one of the competition entrants on Instagram stories once your
shoot has been completed.

Finally if you win the competition we will be as accommodating as possible as to when we
book your shoot. If you are competing then we can plan it around that time, otherwise,
you will be expected to prepare for the shoot.

However if you say you are taking a year out to bulk for example then unfortunately the winner’s prizes will go to the runner up.

The Top Five athletes in each competition will all receive prizes.

Best of Luck to Everyone Entering Photo Shoot Of The Year 2020/European Photo Shoot
Of The Year
