2020 TALK Photography Awards

£4500 of prizes from Sony, Rotolight & ZEISS and UK Exhibition


Welcome to the inaugural TALK Photography Awards, a global photographic competition. As photography can be such a therapeutic creative medium and Luke & Mandy, the founders of TALK have been in the industry for nearly two decades, it seemed appropriate to spread awareness with this competition. All proceeds go directly to the charity, to help us continue our work to reduce the stigma of mental health and directly help those in need. Anyone from planet Earth is welcome to enter. We feel very blessed to be sponsored by four of the industry’s top brands - Sony, Rotolight, ZEISS & WEX Photo Video.

The theme is mental health. There are no rules, just create something that depicts what mental health means to you. A few ideas could be: Portraiture, A landscape scene, A conceptual image
A documentary image. Please note that you are welcome to enter old images, as well as enter a new creation.


The top 15 entries will be exhibited at Wex Photo Video Manchester throughout April. There will be a private view and presentation where the top 15 will be presented with with a Talk Photography Award.

The overall winner will be announced on the opening night and will receive £4500 worth of prizes including a brand new -Sony A7rIII camera, ZEISS Batis 40mm f/2.0, Rotolight AEOS LED Light & Dual LED Soft Carry Case.


From amateurs, to enthusiasts, to professionals, to anyone that captures moments on their phone.
