2019 End of the Year Awards.

AWARDS + CONTESTS

Belle Lumière has been proudly hosting our End of the Year Awards (EOTYA) since 2013.  Our goal, since the beginning, has been to create a platform for photographers to not only put their best work out there but also a place for the community to nominate those who you think did an exquisite job at representing and supporting our industry for that year. 

Starting November 4th we will be opening up our entry and nomination period for four weeks.  So mark your calendars, make sure your subscribed to our newsletter, and get ready for November!

Winning Belle Lumière's Image of the Year Award was the highlight of my year!
I can't believe I almost didn't enter  -  peers in the industry still comment and remember to this day.  I love that contest like Belle Lumière's EOTYAs push us to make more masterful work for our clients and ourselves. 

As a photographer you have come so far.  You've learned your craft.  Worked hard to perfect it day in and day out.  And captured beautiful images ... images that you should be damn proud of.  Show that by proudly sharing them with the world. 

Who is ready for our seventh annual End of The Year Awards?!!  These have quickly become well known and respected in our industry for recognition of our peers and the work they create.  Our 2019 EOTYAs will start November 4th with 4 weeks of entries for our Image of the Year Awards and nominations for our Film Photographer and Emerging Film Photographer of the Year Awards!

2019 Image of the Year Awards Updates

For 2019 we will have four categories for our Image of the Year Awards.  Although we love, love, love film, we have recognized that Hybrid Photographers make up a huge portion of our industry.  We also recognize that there is a time and place for both mediums to work together and thrive.  In celebrating that partnership our image of the year awards will be opening up an additional category alongside our traditional film categories; Color, B&W, & Double Exposure.  This category will be called the Hybrid category and will be open to digital images.  It will not only be judged based on the regular curriculum the other categories are judged on. But it will also be judged on it's capture and editing to emulate film. 

Be sure to check back here mid-October when all the details of this years awards are released.
