British Life Photography Awards 2018

The overall winner will receive Sony products worth £7,000


With ten separate categories including street life, rural life, portraiture and a special new category for students at university, the awards are a unique visual celebration of British life, in all its richness and diversity, creating an enduring visual record of the spirit and essence of our nation.

Documenting daily life has been a tradition for over a century, so just like the great documentary photographers of the past and present, we want to encourage photographers to elevate the commonplace and familiar into something compelling or fascinating through the craft, creativity and discipline of photography.


In addition to the prestige and exposure in the press, exhibition and book there is a £15,000 prize fund from lead sponsor Sony. The overall winner will receive Sony products worth approximately £7,000.


Photographers from any country are welcome to enter but photographs must have been taken in the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.
