About the British Photography Awards

The BPA run an open, responsible competition aimed at celebrating photographic talent from all British and British-based photographers. We work with a range of UK charities to operate a non-profit competition cashflow, and we keep this completely ring-fenced from the rest of the business finance. This is integral to the model. Together we can use the massive power of photography to do real good in the world.

You can sign up for a free account and start using your work to do good in the world as soon as the competition opens.

The competition accepts a broad range of work from across the sector and is independently judged by some of the most respected names in British photography. We are expanding the competition again this year. For a full list of our 2019/2020 categories, please wait for the awards to be announced.

Each year we use public ticket sales and corporate partnership to celebrate the photography competition’s results at The Savoy. At the eponymously titled large scale awards event, we award industry greats and photographic influencers that have made their mark in the past 12 months as well as all the incredible talent from our competition. More details of our event can be found here.
