AOP Student Awards are a celebration of the best of photography amongst students, helping to provide that all important step up to the professional arena. By supporting new emerging talent, the Awards are an opportunity to get a first look at the potential stars of tomorrow.
Entries Open: Friday 5 January 2018
Entries Close: 12noon Monday 9 April
(Please note there will be no extensions this year)
Categories: People, Places, Things
People: covers any form of people-photography from portraiture to street photography , photojournalism and beyond. It is an opportunity to make visual comments about the human race and its ways. In Previous 'Portrait' categories, animal pictures have been featured but the originators of this category feel that entries this year should feature the human race.
Places: Rather than duplicate possible locations such as landscapes and architecture, we offer this category which provides unlimited opportunities. We promise that we will be as flexible as you need us to be.
Things: Covers almost everything else. Think Irving Penn's gutters, Mapplethorpes flowers, Ori Gersht's explosions; cats, dogs, bats and monkeys by Tim Flach, and sublime still-lifes by Richard Maxted then make something unique and sensational of your own. We can't wait to see your work.
