Welcome to the Freshly Baked 2019 BIPP Regional & National Awards!

We’re bringing all nine of the BIPP’s regions together under one umbrella to create a more unified and inclusive awards structure. We hope every member is keen to get involved and show off the superb work we know you’re all producing.

While each region will still have their own dedicated awards, the timeline, categories and judging criteria are now standardised across every region, ensuring all members, no matter where they are located, have the same awards opportunities.

Maybe more importantly this will allow us to harmonise the regional and national awards so that we can automatically push the best work from the regional awards straight into the 2020 national awards later in the year; minimising your hassle and maximising your investment in time and printing.

Online entries for every region are open now and the deadline for digital entries
has been extended to May 12th at 23.00hrs.

About BIPP Awards 

Take part in one of the many different awards events that BIPP has to offer and discover what it takes to become an 'award winning photographer'.

The BIPP Professional Photography Awards celebrate the very best international photography - open to professional photographers, there are a number of categories to choose from.  On top of this there are Regional Awards throughout the year, focusing on images and photographers local to you. 

Highlighting some of the most creative emerging talent, the BIPP Student & College Awards take place each summer – the College Award is only open to students on BIPP accredited courses and profiles the strongest students from the leading photographic courses in the UK.  

The Student Awards are open to all students on photographic courses (Level 3 or above) and showcases the freshest imaging in the UK today.

Finally, as the leading qualifying body for professional photographers in the UK, BIPP highlights the very best work within photographic qualifications with our annual Qualification Awards, featuring the Peter Grugeon Awards for Best Associateship and Best Fellowship submissions, along with the Best Licentiate Submission of the Year and the Fox Talbot and Lichfield Awards.
