From their call: Art is born out of passion. Fine Art photography is a perfect instrument, which allows a person to communicate with the world and share their vision. It results from the author’s deep sensitivity, a need to express feelings through image, a unique view of the surrounding reality. It can be spontaneous, but it can also be a conscious and deliberate manifesto. The Fine Art Photography Awards is searching for photos born out of passion.
There are two main section:
Professional photographers are those who earn at least half of their income from photography. The Amateur category is for photographers who do not make their main income from photography.
In each section photographers can compete in 20 categories, and you may enter as many images as you wish. A series consists of at least two and no more than five images, sharing a common theme and a single title. Series will be judged as an entire piece.

Both published and unpublished work is accepted, and images that have won prizes in other competitions or that have been submitted to other competitions currently underway are eligible.
