FEP European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Award 2011

Open for Entries

The FEP European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Award 2011 is supported for the third consecutive year by Towergate Camerasure insurance company, and has been open from September, 15th 2011.

The aim of this prize is to reward and stimulate creative initiatives by professional photographers, who may often be constrained with assignment work. The competition is totally web based; registering, hosting and judging will all be carried out online. There are no subcategories. Each entrant may submit up to 3 pictures.

"The FEP European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Award is attracting more entries as every year passes. We hope that the number of entries continues to rise and we wish to encourage you all to participate. The ‘raison d’être’ of the Towergate Camerasure Sponsorship is to encourage creativity in photography and this has certainly been achieved with the increasingly high standard of entries submitted previously. Towergate Camerasure is currently a highly respected leading provider of Photographic insurance in the UK and Ireland." says Roy Meiklejon, of Towergate.

Chairman of the international jury, which will consist of at least 5 international experts, will be Master QEP Martin Vrabko.

He adds "On my travels I see many times, that different languages can make a deep abyss. But there is one universal language. Images. I would like to invite and ask all who have something to say in this universal language, to share and submit a message, we would not be able to describe or translate to any language better than where an image speaks for itself. The FEP European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Award 2011 is the right place to talk, to listen and to see..."

The winners will be awarded at a special ceremony. The awards will consist of certificates and an “FEP, European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Award” trophy. The best 13 pictures (First, Second, Third + 10 finalists) will be printed for inclusion in the awards collection which will travel throughout major European countries. Deadline for receipt of entries is January, 8th, 2012. A copy of the comprehensive rules and regulations in the FEP competition can be downloaded here.

The entry fee is 10.00 Euro for each picture submitted by a photographer who is a member of a National Association which is also a member of the FEP or 20.00 Euro for each picture submitted by all others. QEP and Master QEP’s may enter one picture free of charge; should they wish to enter further images, the cost will be 10.00 Euro per picture, the same fee as for FEP members. The winning images will be displayed on the FEP Web Site and possibly travel as an exhibition.
