The New York Photography Awards program honors recognize and promote outstanding photographers worldwide, who share their vision with the world, through the lenses that portray the beauty of immutable reality, along with the dichotomy of Big Apple’s panorama.

The New York Photography Awards categories consist of New York Photography, Architecture Photography, Commercial Photography, Editorial Photography, Fine Art Photography, Nature Photography, People Photography, Black & White Photography, Covid-19 Related Photography, and other special categories, such as Event Photography, Mobile Photography, Film Photography, etc.

Photography is an art form, with a combination of creative dispositions and underlying afternotes. Therefore, it encourages all photographers, from amateurs to professionals, to express themselves through image, and rekindle sparks of the forgotten past with their everlasting visual arts. Similar to Pygmalion’s time-transcendent sculptures, your creative vision will be enshrined for millennia to come. This is your era to merge past, present, and future within ephemeral imagery.
