Emerging Talent Awards 2015 Categories

Winners will be announced in August 2015

General Entry - Series

Please submit up to 10 photographs that work well together either as (1) a visual narrative or (2) a group linked by theme or style. Edit your selections carefully: winners will be judged on the strength of their submissions as unified groups of photos, not as individual photographs. Ten images are the maximum allowed—but fewer, more consistently edited photographs may be judged more highly than ten scattered images.

Emerging photographers, regardless of their age, are encouraged to enter. We consider an "emerging" photographer as anyone who has not yet received significant international recognition. Please see our FAQ for more details.

Please note, not every entry is featured in the Competition Gallery or on our Facebook page. These are curated selections, meaning only a small selection of photos entered are featured. These selections are not related to the final judging by our international jury. If you do not see your photos, please do not worry as the judging for the competition will not start until after the deadline.

Entry deadline

01 July 2015

Entry fee

$60 for up to 10 photos.

Student Entry - Series

Please submit up to 10 photographs that work well together as a series — either as a visual narrative, or images that work well together in theme or style. Edit your selections carefully: winners will be judged on the strength of their submissions as unified groups of photos, not as individual photographs. Currently enrolled students or 2015 graduates can enter the competition with a $25 discount on entry fees. There is not a separate student category, just a discounted fee for students. All entries are judged equally. Please see our FAQ and rules for more details about qualifying for the student discount. Please note, not every entry is featured in the Competition Gallery or on our Facebook page. These are curated selections, meaning only a small selection of photos entered are featured. These selections are not related to the final judging by our international jury. If you do not see your photos, please do not worry as the judging for the competition will not start until after the deadline.
