The Toronto Star Photography Awards 2014 is an inaugural event that celebrates the great work done by keen amateur photographers throughout Canada.The Awards are open to all amateur photographers, from the serious hobbyist to the casual ‘in the moment’ picture-taker and we welcome great images whether they are carefully composed works of photographic art or snapshots, which show inventiveness and spontaneity. Entries are also welcome from students and any amateur practicing the art of photography in any style once it conforms to the rules of the contest.
Photography is a discipline like no other that really blurs the line between professional and amateur. Some of the best photographs have been taken by amateurs. There is a large community of non-professional photographers active in Canada today who are committed to taking great photographs for whom photography is a passion. We were looking for a way to give this community a platform to celebrate and showcase their work to the nation wide Star audience.
