Jury and Voting
The Patagon Journal team will be making daily selections that we will display on our website, Instagram and Facebook pages. In November, the public can vote for their favorite among the 40 finalists, and the photo that receives the most votes will receive the Reader’s Choice Award. Our esteemed panel of six judges – which this year include John Weller, Claudio Vidal, Nicolás Piwonka, Chantal Henderson, Romina Bottazzi, and Pablo Valenzuela – will decide the winners in each category as well as choose the overall winner to be crowned as the Patagonia Photographer of the Year.  
The winner of the Patagonia Photographer of the Year will receive a nature and photography trip for 6 days for 2 people on the big island of Tierra del Fuego with Far South Expeditions as well as 2 nights at Hotel Don Rey Felipe in Punta Arenas.
First place winners in each category will receive a gift card from Patagonia valued at 200 mil pesos (approx. US$265) for use in their retail stores in Chile, two beautiful, large-format photo books from Tompkins Conservation, and a complete collection of the Patagon Journal magazines (22 editions).
Second place winners in each category will receive a pair of ultra-quality sunglasses from Karün that are made from recycled plastic material from the ocean.
The winner of the Readers Choice Award will receive a kayak and trekking trip on Chiloe Island for 2 days for 2 persons with the tour operator Chiloe Natural, as well as a stay for 2 persons for 2 nights at Ocio Territorial Hotel, a 5-star hotel near the city of Castro.
