On the 16th, we will open the registration for the last photo contest this year. Join more than 750 photography professionals around the world.

I want to know more



There are several categories that cover various niches of photography and are judged by some of the most respected photographers spread across several continents around the world.

The judgment will be blind, that is, the juror does not know who is the author of the work thus, the judgment will be as impartial as possible and the work will be judged exclusively for its quality.​

All photos submitted that obtain the coveted Diamond award are presented at the annual EPA and if considered the best, the artist can win the prestigious The Best of EPA Award (within its category).​
