YEARBOOK is our annual awards for photographers, open to all, whatever stage they are at in their career. The Awards and exhibition are promoted to people working within the creative industries and to those who commission photography. We reach out to editors and publishers to share work with them and introduce them to photographers they may not yet know about.

In addition to being featured in the online exhibition and promoted to industry experts, photographers could also win one of these YEARBOOK Awards:
