announced two new prizes and an extended deadline for its International Photography Award.
Photographers now have until 1 October to enter the prize, which is already attracting entries from all over the world. Photographers can enter two categories the best body of work, and the best single image both of which are judged by a panel of photographic experts.
First prize for the best body of work is now a £5000 voucher for professional photographic retailer Robert White. Robert Whites extensive range of kit includes everything from Nikon and Canon DSLRs to Rodenstock large format cameras, and photographers are free to spend the money however they choose. This voucher replaces the previous first prize for the body of work, a Leaf camera. Blurb.com has also come on board with an extra prize for photographers in the single image prize a photobook with a selection of the best single-image entries. First prize for the single image category is the professional-standard compact, the Sigma DP2.
Photographers in both categories will also see their winning images printed by Spectrum, one of Europes leading labs. These prints will be exhibited at the AOPs leading London gallery, then handed over to the winners.
The International Photography Award is now five years old, and previous winners include World Press Photo winner Walter Astrada, Mexican Joop Swart Masterclass attendee Carla Verea and advertising and editorial photographer Frank Herfort. Previous judges include Magnum photographer Chris Steele-Perkins and publisher Dewi Lewis.
