Burgess calls all budding crew photographers and videographers to capture ‘Experience, Exploration, and Expertise' (can be one or more of these themes) in a bid to be crowned Crew Photographer or Videographer of the Year 2019.
Whether you have just started or have been camera-happy for years, Burgess challenges you to submit your best shot and / or video.
