Download your guide to the best photography contests

4 years ago

There's a whole range of photography competitions out there to choose from – perhaps too many – so how did you find out the contests that are the best fit for you? 

To help discover what awards are best for you, we've created a free, downloadable guide in partnership partnered with PhotoShelter – a platform aiming to transform the way image-makers and businesses communicate their stories and manage their visual assets online. Inside you'll find our top tips on how to create a winning image and what to keep in mind during the submission process. You can also enjoy interviews with our 2019 Sony World Photography Awards Photographer of the Year Frederico Borella, advice from Mike Trow, our 2020 Professional competition judging chair and our CEO Scott Gray shed light on the aims and ambitions of the World Photography Organisation. 

PhotoShelter also recommends their top competitions to enter, based on contest ethics, submission rights, judging and more. 


The Photographer’s Guide to Photo Contests will help you navigate the photo contest landscape to choose the contests that are best for you, your business and your brand. 

Don't forget! the Sony World Photography Awards are now open for entries! Discover more here.
