There are many different awards created to have photographers submit their artwork, and be judged by their peers of professional photographers and masters of their craft. The Australian Photographic Prize is an annual competition, open to entries from all over the world in different genres ranging from maternity, newborn, family, life events and even astrophotography. Entries for categories can be submitted as digital entries or print entries, these are not submitted in the same categories. the entries may have been created specifically for the award with maximum creativity and many many hours spent in finishing the photograph to perfection, or it could be stunning client work – the people who will be able to cherish their award-winning artwork in their homes forever.
Results and the feedback given by the panel of judges helps me to reflect on my photography and make it better.
