About the Contest

The competitions are divided into several categories and designed so that all EPA members can participate, for free. There are several categories that cover various photography niches and are judged by some of the most respected photographers, from Brazil and from all continents. It'll be a blinded jugment, that is, the judges does not know the author of the photo. Thus, the judgment will be as impartial as possible and the work will be judged by its quality, and not by the author. All photos submitted that obtain the badge Diamond award are presented at the EPA annual trial and if considered the best, the artist can win the prestigious The Best of EPA award (within its category).​​
