New Year 2021 message from 2and3D Photography
The fourth Historic Photographer of the Year Awards launched for entries on 14th July 2020 and was open to amateur and professional photographers around the world. Our very own Kira Zumkley was one of this year's judges!
The Association of Photographers (AOP) has published some guidelines for Photographers and creatives when shooting during this pandemic.
A message from the committee. We will also be updating you with any information we find relating to our industry and any help that is available during these very sad and troubling times.

This has been an extraordinary year for many of us. The Corona pandemic has changed our lives fundamentally and the effects on our heritage industry will be radical. We will probably all face budget cuts and traveling around the world will no longer be possible for many of us. But looking at the bright side, we have learned how to reach out to each other and talk through our screens via Teams, Zoom, Skype and WhatsApp. Some of us already had the experience with online conferences. Our 2and3D Photography conference partner AHFAP replaced their annual conference with four successive Wednesday lunch sessions. The online possibilities are available to us so that we can exchange information and knowledge. However, nothing can replace having personal contact and meeting old friends and colleagues.
The fourth edition of 2and3D Photography was originally planned in April 2021. In the beginning of this year we had already announced that we would postpone it to 2022. Whether that will be possible still remains to be seen. We are now considering organizing an online edition to take place in May 2021, with four 90 minutes sessions over four weeks. We will notify you about any further developments as soon as possible.
Until then stay safe and healthy and, on behalf of the 2and3D program- and advisory committee, I wish you all a very happy 2021.
