Over the last 5 years we have helped launch the careers of dozens of photographers through The Emerging Photography Awards and we are excited to announce that our annual international photography competition for up-and-coming image makers is back! We have a great lineup of judges that are ready to see work of all genres.

And this year due to economic hardships faced by many in the photography community, we've lowered the submission fee to $25.

Because one of our main goals of the Emerging Photography Awards is getting the work of photographers seen, we are especially excited about the exhibitions this year since they will be viewed by tens of thousands of people in person across the UK and (of course) internationally, online.

This year, 3-5 selected photographers will be featured as part of FORMAT21 Festival in the UK. FORMAT is the UK's leading international contemporary festival of photography and related media and the festival welcomes over 100,000 visitors from all over the world to its biennale.

In addition to this exhibition another 10 photographers will have their work exhibited on the streets of East London for a week as part of a group poster exhibition.
