Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Grand Prix de Découverte Int’l Fine Art Photo Award

logo_ifa So many talented photographers—whether emerging or mid-career, whether amateur or dedicated full time to fine art photography—are looking for a path to have their work seen and appreciated by a wider audience. Exhibiting work and having images presented in quality publications is an important part of moving forward as a photographic artist. This competition is designed to promote these goals and to provide recognition and support to help deserving artists on their creative path.

We invite emerging and mid-career photographers from around the world to submit work to the International Fine Art Photography competition—an annual program focused on providing recognition and exposure for talented photographic artists of all ages (18 years and older).

All images will be thoughtfully reviewed by our panel of jurors. Finalists will be selected for exhibition, and winners will receive cash awards as well as exhibition and publication opportunities in the international fine art photography community.
