It is time to gather the best of your best images and submit them for the FEP European Professional Photographer of the Year Awards, 2016!
The competition is an unique opportunity for photographers to show-case their work amongst peers from all over Europe and gain well deserved recognition in Diplomas and Gold, Silver & Bronze cameras for your work.
This year we are introducing :
– 3 new categories FASHION, SPORT and WILDLIFE. Images for Reportage/Photojournalism, Wildlife, Sport and Landscape should be single image pictures.
– new facilities, in order to make the procedure easier for the entrants.
We also intend to highlight more intensively the achievements of Medallists and Diploma holders on our FEP web-site. There will be special galleries where individual photographers images are going to be displayed to help you all promote your well-deserved achievements!
We look forward to welcoming you, and your work in the FEP Photographer of the Year Awards 2016.
