BJP is calling for entries to its fifth International Photography Award – a juried competition with a total prize fund worth more than £13,000 ($25,000/€16,500).

You have TWO chances to win, because there are TWO categories – one recognising an outstanding body of work, the other an outstanding single image (you can also enter more than once).

  • The single image winner will win a SIGMA DP2 – a professional compact digital.
  • The body of work winner will win a LEAF CAMERA – exact model TBC.

The winning body of work and the single image will be given a solo show at a leading London photography gallery, printed by one of Europe’s top fine art laboratories. Both winners will also feature in British Journal of Photography.


To enter a body of work

Submit a series of between 12 and 30 images on CD, together with an entry form and a fee of £25 (also payable in Euros or US dollars, priced €30 or $40).

To enter a single image

You will be asked to submit the £5 fee (also payable in Euros or US dollars, priced €6 or $8) via PayPal and will then be able to upload a single image plus text and contact details.

Uploaded images should be 72dpi and 1200 pixels on their longest edge. Images should be between 3MB and 5MB in size. However images should be available at 300dpi for exhibition at the AOP. Photographers are welcome to submit more than one image, but must pay and upload separately for each.

Photographers who wish to enter more than one image must complete this procedure for each one.

The images can be shot in any format, using any camera model, on film or digital. If you are entering a series of images, please indicate the viewing order, if appropriate. Please label each image with surname_firstname01/02/03 as appropriate. Full contact details should also be inserted into the pull-down-file information box, for example at File>File Info in Photoshop.

Captions or a short text can be included with the photographs. Please include this as a Word document with the CD or fill in the appropriate box in the upload area. Please make clear to which image each piece of text refers. The text can be a maximum of 200 words long per image.
