BJP International Photography Award

From 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, the BJP International Photography Award was created to discover and promote the best in contemporary photographic talent around the world.

Now running for over 15 years, each year the award brings together a judging panel of industry leaders to celebrate and reward one outstanding body of work with a distinct and compelling narrative on any topic. This year,  we have split the award into two categories, the Solo Show category and the Group Show category. 20 single winning images will be exhibited in a group show in a London Gallery. The winning photographer of the Solo Show category will be awarded a solo show in London UK.

BJP International Photography Award has proved instrumental in launching the careers of some of today’s most respected photographers, including Juno Calypso, Daniel Castro Garcia, Jack Latham and Felicity Hammond.

Between a month-long solo show, extensive industry exposure, international media coverage and features in both British Journal of Photography print magazine and BJP-Online, BJP International Photography Award offers a unique platform for global photographic acclaim.
