We made a huge list of international photography awards and competitions to help photographers keep up with all the opportunities to gain exposure that are out there. The list is slightly curated to include awards aimed at professional and semi-professional photographers from all around the world, but there are options for amateurs as well. (We also have a huge list of international photography grants and fellowships and photobook publishers).
