#WexMondays is a beloved competition that, over the years, has seen some truly phenomenal photography. We’ve seen images from all photographic disciplines from wildlife to landscapes, architecture to portraiture, and so much more.

This year, we thought it was time for a change...

#WexMondays will now be held on a monthly basis, and it will be open to video and content creators alike. Did we mention that the prizes are bigger than ever?

There’s no theme and you can submit as many entries as you like, so you can experiment with as many styles as you wish. Submissions need to be captured and submitted before the last Monday of each month. Photo and video submissions will be shortlisted at the end of the month and judged separately by internal experts.

The monthly winners will be announced on our social feeds and each category winner will get £500 in Wex vouchers.

Entries for the competition will open the 1st of each month.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you changing from weekly to monthly?

We hope to give everyone more of a chance to take and develop their photography or videography without the pressure of a weekly competition. While many are able to go out, shoot and edit on a weekly basis, many cannot, and we want to be able to open the competition up to as many people as possible.

Why is there no theme?

There are many different creative disciplines within photography and videography and we want to draw in as many styles and entries as possible.

What is the prize?

Each month, the winners from the video and photography categories will each win £500 worth of Wex Photo Video vouchers.

Is there a WPOTY?

Under the new competition, there will not be a Wex Photographer of the Year but the monthly winners from both categories will be celebrated at the year's end.

Can I enter through Facebook?

The competition cannot be entered on Facebook. To enter, you have to post a photo or video on Twitter or Instagram and tag it with #WexMondays.

How do you judge the submissions?

The submissions are judged based on composition, lighting, subject matter, and technical skill. We do not discriminate on the kit used to take the image/video

We have a diverse panel of judges with different backgrounds and areas of expertise. This is in the hopes we can provide a well-rounded perspective on the submissions.

We view the photos and videos anonymously to avoid any potential bias.

When does the competition start?

The competition will commence on the 1st of each month and run until the last Monday of each month.
