British Photography Awards 2017

ENTER CONTEST

Here at the British Photography Awards we are deeply invested in showcasing the finest photographs taken in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our team administers a series of regional photography prizes in a range of categories that call for the very best of British photography.

However, regional photography awards are only half of our story. Unlike many other projects, we are not solely dedicated to highlighting the photographer's art. Instead, every month we work with different UK charities to help communities that support the competition itself. These organisations are selected based on both their operational ethics and real-world effectiveness.

In short, our concept is a hybrid of open, responsible competition twinned with charity fund-raising.

By choosing to enter the British Photography Awards, you will be directly contributing to the betterment of these green and pleasant lands, and those further afield. In addition of course, there is the high level of prestige and national exposure that comes from entering a competition of this scope. At the end of the year, the BPA welcomes the winners and runners-up of each national category to a display of their work and hosts charity gala to support the organisations involved. At this event we celebrate the photographers who have submitted the best work and present the figures on charity funds raised.
