Youth - a single brief for emerging talent aged 12-19

Student - for photography students across the globe


BRAND NEW CATEGORIES

The 2019 Awards sees the introduction of two challenging new categories in the Professional competition: Brief and Documentary. Brief asks photographers to compose a body of work on a specific theme. The inaugural theme for this year is "Identity". Documentary is a new category for bodies of work portraying facts about a chosen subject, giving insight into contemporary issues and news.
