The APA Awards 2012 Annual Photo Competition

APA_AWARDS_AMERICAN...webDEADLINE EXTENDED TO 30 SEPTEMBER. American Photographic Artists members and non-members from across the world are invited to participate in our annual celebration of extraordinary image-making.

You’ve got the work. You’ve got the talent and the APA wants to put the spotlight on you.

Winners will be recognized for outstanding work that reflects personal vision and exemplifies technical excellence. Award winning photographers get many additional marketing opportunities through vigorous competition promotion. Your images could be part of one or all of the additional advertising measures featured below that you would spend normally thousands of marketing dollars on.

Direct Exposure: Have an acclaimed panel of judges reviewing your work.
Widespread Exposure: Imagine your award winning image as the leading image on one or several e-blasts that get straight into the inbox of image buyers and 15,000 creatives.
Long Exposure: See your image featured in the winners gallery on the APA website for all of 2012-13.

That’s not all. The American Photographic Artists pulled out all the stops this year. Because we understand what a tough market it is for so many photographers we negotiated great prizes from our sponsors. Take your business to the next level with the many winning opportunities that include free marketing consulting, training, and equipment from recognized names in our industry.
