XI International Boardgame Photography Award 2018

The International Boardgaming Photography Award is being organized by the cultural association Jugamos Tod@s as part of the activities of the International Games Festival in Cordoba (Spain) since 2008.

Every year, we get thousands of pictures from around the world about games, and people playing! Images of beautiful components, funny montages, amazing moments... The theme of the photographs is games or the act of playing in any of its manifestations. The photos may show any aspect of recreational activity: games of any kind, people playing, games of the world, modern or classic boardgames, details of game components, set-ups and generally any display of games or play.
