Who is a professional photographer?

If your main source of income is photography, you are considered a professional photographer. Those who seek or make a livelihood by practice of photography are professional photographers.

Who is an amateur photographer?

If your main source of income is not photography, you are considered an amateur photographer. Those (beginners and regulars) who randomly make photographs or / and show an active interest in photography, through not necessarily to earn an income, are amateurs.

What Is The Points System?

  • Gold = 20 POINTS
  • Silver = 10 POINTS
  • Bronze = 5 POINTS
  • Finalists = 2 POINTS

Will the all the points be calculated for an entry which has won in two or more categories?

If you have entered your work in two or more categories and for example if you have won a silver and a bronze. The total points will only be taken from the highest winning entry. In this case the photographer will be get 10 points from the silver entry and not get 15 points (10 + 5) for the silver and bronze entry.

How is the 'Photographer of the Year' award chosen?

The photographer with the maximum number of points for his / her top 10 entries across all sub-categories will win the Title. The photographer will need a minimum of 22 points to be considered for the 'Photographer of the Year' Title.

How is the 'Photographer of the Year: (Country)' award chosen?

The photographer of a Country with the maximum number of points for his / her top 10 entries across all sub-categories will win the Title. The photographer will need a minimum of 22 points to be considered for the 'Photographer of the Year: (Country)' Title. This is only valid for the professional photographers.

Can a photographer win the Photographer of the Year award, if he / she sends less than 10 entries?

While there is no upper limit to the number of entries a photographer can submit, the more number of entries will only work towards better chances of winning the award. The minimum number of entries will have to be 2. This is applicable for the Professional, Amateur & Student expertise categories.

For example:
If Photographer A sends 2 entries and wins 1 Gold + 1 Finalist respectively, he would have 20 + 2 = 22 points.
If Photographer B sends 10 entries but wins 1 Silver + 2 Bronze + 2 Finalist respectively, he would have 10 + (5x2) + (2x2) = 24 points.

And Photographer C also sends 12 entries but wins 2 Bronze + 10 Finalists, only the top 10 entries will be considered – that is, 2 Bronze + 8 Finalists. Now the photographer will have (5x2) + (8x2) = 26 points.
In such a scenario,
Photographer C will win the 'Photographer of the Year' Gold title.
Photographer B will win the 'Photographer of the Year' Silver title.
Photographer A will win the 'Photographer of the Year' Bronze title.

What if there is a tie once the points are tallied?

In case there is a tie where photographers have the same points, their quality of metals (number of Golds, Silvers & Bronzes) will be taken into account to determine the winner.

How are the Individual Category Title Winners chosen?

(For example, 'PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR – ARCHITECTURE')
The photographer with the maximum number of points for his / her top 10 entries in the respective category will win the Title. The photographer will need a minimum of 12 points to be considered for the 'Photographer of the Year - Category' Title.

How is the 'Photography Book Publisher of the Year' award chosen?

Book Publishers cannot submit work directly. Photographers submitting work under the Book category will have to mention the name of the Book Publisher (applicable only to Professional Photographers). The points awarded to photographer(s) for the work they submit is carried over to the respective Book Publisher. The Book Publisher with the highest aggregate will win the Title. There are no separate entry fees for this award.

How many photographs can I enter as a single series?

You can enter from a minimum of 2 images to a maximum of 10 images under a single series. Every series will be judged as a whole, as a single body of work.

How will the trophies and certificates be sent to the recipients?

Can the same photograph be submitted under multiple categories?

Definitely. You can submit your photographs under any number of relevant categories. For example if you send the work in two categories and you win a bronze and silver. The points will be calculated for silver (the higher winning entry). Doing so will only work towards bettering your chances of winning. The same piece of work submitted in different categories does not ensure that you will get the same results in all the categories entered.

Is it okay that the photograph submitted has already taken part / awarded by a contest in the past?

Sure. You can submit a photograph that was submitted / awarded in any other contest in the past.
