The fifth edition of the annual competition is now taking submissions for all 11 categories until 11 February. Read on to find out how to enter and check out the calibre of last year’s winners.

Winner Luis Tate Spanish Festival of Fire and Horses

This year will see a number of updates to the event, including two new categories (Venues and Food) and a cash prize of £1,000 for the overall winner. We’re particularly happy to see Venues added as a category as we know that it takes a lot of talent to portray how exciting an event space can really be when it’s empty.

Both amateurs and professionals are welcome to enter photographs of all sorts of events from the corporate to the experiential. Short-listed photographers will be invited to the awards ceremony on 3 May at The British Museum, where the winners will be announced for each category. Tickets cost £30pp, and proceeds will go towards charities Meeting Needs and PhotoVoice.

Not sure whether to give it a shot? 2014 Overall Winner Paul Clarke shares, ‘Being an Event Photography Awards winner made a huge difference to my profile and success as an event photographer. It's great to see such a celebration of the visual side of the events industry.’
