About us

The World Photography Organisation was established in 2007 by Founder and CEO Scott Gray. Our purpose is to raise the level of conversation around photography worldwide, through a year-round programme of exhibitions, awards and competitions.

Our mission is to support photographers around the world, to celebrate and show their work, as well as nurture the medium of photography on a global scale. 

Our value lies in the integrity of our expertise, our years of experience and the strength of our relationships with both individual photographers as well as our industry-leading partners around the world.
