Time is running out to get your image submissions in for AUTO PHOTO Awards 2023, with the deadline for entries on 18 September 2023 (5pm UK time), so now’s your opportunity to enter your images and be part of our celebration of the best automotive photography from around the world!


We are dedicated to showcasing the best automotive photographers, showcasing it through a book and exhibition, and awarding a series of high end prizes, creating opportunities for collaborations and commissions, and uniting everyone through our shared passions. All while creating new connections between international communities and the photography and automotive industries.

Aside from five individual category awards, there will be an exhibition of the winning and highly commended photographs, and a book of the top 100 images will be produced by Shutter Hub Editions.

Selected image entries will be showcased on Instagram throughout the open call and afterwards, and all winning images will be showcased on and


Five Diverse Categories:

The world is changing, where do we go from here? It’s not all about EVs (but show us them too!), we want to see the integration of technologies, engine development, tuning and performance, sustainability in materials, resto-mods, hybrids and ICEs too!

Cars as Art
There’s beauty in the build. From abstract images and macro details to super sleek lighting and cars on the street, this is the place to take your creativity to the max.

On track or off road, from circuit racing to rally cross, endurance to sprint, and drag to drift, we want to see Motorsport in all its glory.

Scenes and Styling
Show us the show cars, the super-charged super cars, the priceless classics, the drift beasts, the slammed and stanced, the ‘built not bought’ cars, and everything in between.

Car Culture
It’s about the people behind the wheel and under the hood. This is the place to big-up the clubs and communities, the lifestyle, locations, and looks.
