ENTER CONTEST

The Siena International Photo Awards (SIPAContest) is one of the post prestigious photography competition for professional, amateur and student photographers from around the world. It is judged by an international panel of experts that includes renowned photographers, editors and picture buyers.
The winning images are selected by a professional jury from among thousands of entries received from all over the world.
Since 2015, the grand prize has been selected from among the winning images of the categories and has been awarded to a single image in adult and young competition respectively.

The winners of the main categories are invited to attend the gala to compete for the main award of Siena Photographer of the Year. The winner of the main award receives the coveted Pangea Prize statuette.
The awards ceremony takes place in Siena at the Teatro dei Rozzi, Siena theatre. On this day, the final Saturday of October, the Siena International Photographer of the Year and the award-winning images come out.
An exhibition of the winning and honorable mention images, as well as Remarkable Artworks, named "Beyond the Lens", is located each year at the exhibition space of the former distillery "Lo Stellino".
