Following a virtual awards ceremony in 2020 and a pandemic-enforced pause in 2021, the Off To Work Event Photography Awards is now open for entry, with photographers encouraged to enter images captured during 2020 and 2021.

Both professional and amateur photographers can enter the competition. The deadline for entries is July 31 with the awards ceremony set to take place at No.4 Hamilton Place in Mayfair October 4.

Two new categories have been added to the competition. COVID Chronicles is a special one-off class which has already attracted evocative shots. The other is the classic photography genre Portraits.

Competition director, Graham Hill, commented: “Photography does so much to promote and sustain the events industry and as such we felt it was important not to wait until 2023 to relaunch the Event Photography Awards, especially as there have been some amazing images taken between lockdowns and at COVID-compliant events.

“With this in mind, we’ve organised a quick-fire double-year competition, hence the unusually short amount of time to submit event-related images. Encouragingly, past entrants are already uploading fabulous shots into a new system that also allows organisers and venues to enter photos on behalf of photographers that they have hired.”
