The 2014 APA AWARDS Photo Competition is here! American Photographic Artists’ annual competition is open to photographers from around the world. Members and non-members alike are invited to submit their best work for an excellent chance to win amazing prizes including photography equipment, software and professional business support.
31 winning images will be chosen based on creative expression and technical excellence. Categories include Portrait, Action, Fine Art/Personal, Conceptual, Fashion, Landscape, Architecture, Still Life, Lifestyle/Wedding and Student.
This is a great opportunity for you to advance your career and gain international exposure. The competition’s impressive panel of judges features top creative directors, art producers, art buyers, photo editors and gallery owners.
