AoP-PhotographersAwards2011

The 2011 Photographers Awards Call for Entries is now open!

The AOP Photographers Awards is the most prestigious and highly respected competition for professional photographers worldwide.

Being selected for the Book and Exhibition is one of the greatest accolades available to professional photographers and offers major exposure to art buyers and the creative industry as a whole. In addition all selected entrants will have an extensive presence on the Awards website.

This year sees the return of ‘The Best Use of Commercial Photography’, the category solely open to Commissioners of Photography. We now also have 2 new and exciting categories specifically for Moving Imagery, which look to be firm favourites!

Get your entries in early this year to benefit from our Early Bird running between 21st March-1st April as prices will go up 20% thereafter.

Final date for entries 3 May 2011
