The awards are open to professionals, amateurs and students, offering a platform for talented photographers to help launch their careers, or promote their existing businesses. Entries are welcome in any genre, giving those in both wide and more niche sectors of the industry the opportunity to gain exposure and recognition for their work. We also host a 'Young Photographer of the Year' category for entrants aged between 12-17.
Monthly winners of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond levels will gain 'National Award Winning' status and will be able to promote their achievement using an NPA Award Winning Logo. Winning images will also be featured on our website and Facebook page. Throughout the year, all images achieving Silver award status or higher will automatically be entered into the relevant category of the 'Photographer of the Year' awards.
Our themed competitions are free to enter and monthly 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will gain 'National Award Winning' status. Winners can promote their achievement using the relevant NPA Award Winning Logo and will also see their winning image featured on our website and Facebook page. Winning images will also be entered into the 'Judges Choice' category of the Photographer of the Year awards.
