The UK National Photography Awards are open to professionals, amateurs and students, offering a great platform for talented photographers to gain exposure & recognition for their work and a stepping stone for new photographers to help launch their careers. Entries are welcome in any genre, giving those in both wide and more niche sectors of the industry the opportunity to gain national award winning status. We also host a Young Photographer of the Year category for entrants aged between 12-17.
We run monthly awards, opening on the 1st of every month and closing on the last calender day of each month. Entries are welcome in any genre and those achieving a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Diamond award level will be able to promote their achievement with the use of an NPA award winning logo. Throughout the year, all award winning images will automatically be entered into the relevant category of our Photographer of the Year awards.
In addition to monthly awards, we also host regular 'themed' competitions. Our themed competitions are free to enter and monthly 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be able to promote their achievement using an NPA award winning logo. Winners may also be featured on the NPA website and Facebook page and the three winning images each month will automatically be entered into the relevant category of our Photographer of the Year awards.
Towards the end of the year three finalists will be selected in each of our award categories and invited to attend the 2014 'Oscars of the photography industry', where the category winners will be announced and presented with their awards. With a variety of coveted titles and trophies up for grabs in different categories, our glittering awards ceremony is set to be the most glamorous event in the photography calendar, celebrating the very best of British photography. And of course one lucky person will be crowned with the ultimate title 'British Photographer of the Year 2014'
