NEW CATEGORIES
 
The 2021 Awards introduces new categories across the Professional, Youth and Open competitions and a refreshed theme for the Student competition. In choosing these new categories, the Awards hopes to continue appealing to a diverse range of contemporary photographers. 
 
In the Professional competition a new category for single images is introduced titled Portfolio in which photographers are requested to submit 5-10 images not related to each other in subject matter or narrative but where the photographer’s quality and technical skills are evident and consistent throughout. The Architecture category has also been expanded to include Design giving photographers the option to showcase exteriors and urban landscapes alongside interiors with an architectural approach.
 
In the Open competition two new categories have been introduced: Lifestyle and Object. Lifestyle features editorial, fashion or family images of people in situations or events taken in an artistic manner while Object presents images depicting inanimate subject matters. This can include photography for commercial and advertising purposes but must show the photographer’s artistic approach.
 
In the Youth competition monthly themes have all been updated to include the following:
 
Composition and Design (July): 
creative images from around the home that encapsulate good composition and design. 
 
Culture (August): 
images that have enriched and expanded our appreciation of the world and its people. Be it immersing in local culture or capturing a unique travel experience away from home. 
 
Natural World & Wildlife (September): 
photographs of the best wildlife, nature and landscape taken in 2020. 
 
Street Life (October): 
images of urban landscapes from eye-catching graffiti, architectural details or snapshots that offer a glimpse into everyday life. 
 
People  (November): 
portrait shots, be it studio, candid or even a self-portrait.
 
Show Us Your World (December): 
Open Call! Entries can be on any topic, style or subject matter.
 
For the first brief in the Student competition entrants are be asked to submit images under the theme of Building a Better Future which showcases the stories of people who are working towards creating a better future for all.
