AUTO PHOTO Awards 2023 – Top 100 Pop-Up (Caffeine & Machine)

We’ll be officially launching the AUTO PHOTO Awards 2023 Digital Exhibition as a pop-up during our meet-up at Caffeine & Machine: The Hill on 15 February 2024.

The pop-up features the Top 100 images from the 2023 awards, including 30 award-winning and Highly Commended images selected by experts from the photographic and automotive industries. You can find out more about the awards here, and the judges here.

The featured images have been selected from hundreds of entries submitted by photographers from around the world, and are printed in the AUTO PHOTO 02 book, published by Shutter Hub Editions.


Alongside the exhibition launch, Shutter Hub and AUTO PHOTO Creative Director and Founder Karen Harvey will be sitting down with Caffeine & Machine founder Phil McGovern as part of their Inside the Machine series, where guests from the automotive industry and car culture are invited to talk about their craft, how they approach it and take questions from the audience.

Karen will be speaking about her work as a photographer, curator, consultant, and publisher, as well as sharing how AUTO PHOTO Awards came to be what it is, where it’s going, and how it all works.


If you’ve not visited The Hill, before, then this is the perfect time to join us for a friendly get-together. Come and enjoy an evening of conversation, photography, and cars.


Everyone is welcome, but booking is required. Tickets are free, and you can get your hands on yours, here.

Photography is encouraged, so bring your camera and get involved.


AUTO PHOTO Awards are powered by Shutter Hub, celebrating the best in automotive photography, while creating new connections between international communities and the photography and automotive industries.
