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.
In addition to our Photographer of the Year awards, we also host regular 'themed' competitions. Our themed competitions are free to enter and monthly 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will automatically be entered into the relevant category of our annual POTY awards! Monthly winners will be featured on our Facebook Page and may also see their image featured on the NPA website!
Towards the end of the year finalists will be selected in each of our award categories and invited to attend the 2015 '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'
