Ribbet Emerging Photographer Competition 2023

1st place: US $2,000 2nd place: US $1,000 3rd place: US $500


Ribbet, the photo editing platform trusted by over 2 million creatives worldwide, has launched the first season of its new, annual Ribbet Emerging Photographer Competition. With a judging panel made up of world-renowned photographers and thousands of dollars in cash prizes on offer, emerging and amateur photographers are encouraged to submit images that fit with this year’s official theme: “There’s nothing quite like this.” Entries close on April 30th.

Photographers are invited to seek out small, beautiful things around them. “There’s nothing quite like this” refers to those moments that are unique to each of us and that, in a crowded and fast paced environment, bring happiness and calm.

Three winning entries will be selected based on creativity, originality, whether they fit with the official theme, composition, quality and overall appeal. This year’s jury includes:

Andrew Rovenko, Photographer, Australia
Ben Meisner, Founder, Ribbet, Australia
Jess Brohier, Photographer & Creative Director, Australia
Lucy Helena, Content Creator & Photographer, USA
Luke Shadbolt, Photographer / Designer, Australia
Sina Domke, Fine Art Photographer, Germany


1st place: US $2,000
2nd place: US $1,000
3rd place: US $500

All participants will receive 30 days of free Ribbet Premium membership.
