Photography contest invites submissions for fine art award

The Photo Democracy Award for Fine Art Photography is said to be the “only award in the world that judges photographs on commercial value, with the simple aim of unearthing fantastic imagery and getting it on to collectors’ walls”, says the Chris Beetles Fine Photographs gallery, which organises the award.

Photographers have until 31 May to enter their work in categories including abstract, architecture, conceptual, landscape, portrait, travel, urban and winter, among many others. The judges – photographers Steve McCurry, Michael Kenna, Lottie Davies, as well as Magnum Photos’ Sophie Wright, Metro Imaging Steve Macleod and Giles Huxley-Parlour of Chris Beetles Fine Photographs – will select 21 photographers, whose winning images will be sold by Photo Democracy.

One photographer will receive the Chris Beetles Award, which comprises a £2000 cash prize and representation from the gallery, while another will receive a one-on-one workshop with Metro Imaging.

There is a £20 entry fee for submissions. For more details and to enter visit
