The Lumiere Awards

Photography is the driving visual force of our time. In still and movie form, images influence how we think, see and act. Whether by conjuring past times or transporting us to the farthest reaches of the present, photographs expose our humanity.

The Lumiere Photography Awards is an international open call for photography possessing uncommon vision. This opportunity is open to photographers of all backgrounds who capture images that make the unknowable known. Our goal is to celebrate the most iconic photos taken by new and emerging talent, as well as professionals, from around the world and award their photographic insights.
