ESPY Photography Award 2019

Espy photo award is a contemporary international photography prize.


Espy photo award is a contemporary international photography prize. Based in Swansea, Wales.

Espy supports all mediums and genres of photography and is keen to showcase photographers experimenting with their process.

We are looking for submissions that show imaginative and vibrant practice in contemporary photography, showcasing photographers that are working on projects in both Analogue and Digital formats.

Espy is interested in photographers that push the boundaries and experiment with their chosen technologies.

We are looking for work that is created digitally with an outcome as a digital print or even transcend into other formats of presentation. Analogue is defined as shooting on film then creating darkroom or digital prints, camera less darkroom techniques, chemigrams or any part of the process created using analogue process.


This year there are two prizes. £1000 for Analogue and £1000 for digital with both artists also receiving a joint show at elysium gallery in 2020. All shortlisted artists will be included in the exhibition catalogue.

Plus a special prize of a years membership to Shutter Hub.
