The annual competition showcases the pictures of royals by the local, regional and national news media industry, taken at Royal Rota engagements.

The NMA manages the Royal Rota on behalf of its members, allocating passes for the hundreds of Royal engagements undertaken by members of the Royal Family each year and ensuring that the material is pooled among members.

Winners announced later in October.
