Late in 2014, we introduced a new facet to our competitions, aiming to deliver an additional level of feedback to our membership - a Mystery Reviewer who selects his or her top images, as well as providing a short critique for each of the images they have chosen.  Our Mystery Reviewer(s) will (usually) remain anonymous, but we can assure you that he/she has extensive expertise in photographic techniques, wildlife/nature photography and judging photographic competitions.  The Small in the Landscape competition was the first competition where our Mystery Reviewer was introduced.

Our Mystery Reviewers select and critique images from all three competition levels; Entry Level, Intermediate, and Advanced (not all Advanced level competitions have had a Mystery Reviewer).  Mystery Reviewers chosen for critiquing the Advanced level competitions are award-winning and/or professional photographers.  The Mystery Reviewer has some discretion in the number of images they select, generally from 5 images up to about 12.  The number of images selected is generally highest for Advanced, then Immediate and finally Entry level.  This is because there are more high quality images submitted by the more experienced advanced level photographers, images are often difficult to separate and they are worthy of recognition.  This is not discriminatory because the different levels do not compete against each other.

All the Mystery Reviewer selections/critiques are available from the Mystery Reviewer Critiques page; the most recent articles are at the top.

Photographers whose images have been selected by a Mystery Reviewer can contact our website administrator, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., who will advise if the Mystery Reviewer is willing to be contacted for further discussion of their image.
