International Portrait Photographer of the Year until 30 April 2022

Deadline: 30 April 2022. A global competition for professionals & amateurs purely for the showcase of portrait photography. We aim to be the gold standard for portrait photography worldwide.

This is our second International Portrait Photographer of the Year Award. Last year was very successful and we’re gratefully encouraged to continue, following a similar philosophy to our popular International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards (now in its ninth year). And because we want to create contemporary books, we’re not interested in old chestnuts that have already won awards many years ago, we want to see what you’re capturing and processing now. That’s why your entries must have been captured after 1 January 2019 (so, within the 40 months or so, realising COVID has impacted all of us in some way).

The main aim of our Awards is to be one of the Top 101 Portrait Photographs of the year and be published in the Awards book. Will you be there?

There is US$10,000 in cash prizes shared between the overall winner and 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each of the four categories, plus a printed copy of the book from Momento Pro for these 13 winners. The remaining Top 101 photographers also have the opportunity to purchase a printed copy of the book, or of course they can download an eBook version from the website.
