Prize: Cash Prize
Chromatic Awards is an international competition of color photography open to both professionals and amateurs. Participation in the Chromatic Awards offers not only prestige, but also the opportunity to win extra money for the development of passion.

Availability of photographic equipment makes the competition among photographers very large, and the possibility of breakthrough is extremely difficult. Amateurs and professional photographers who want to share their passion must demonstrate not only a good knowledge of the workshop, but also the tenacity in pursuing their aim.

Our mission is to provide artists the opportunity to share their passion and stories through their photographs, promote the world's top photographers, and discover new, emerging talents.

With twenty categories, the chance to show the very core of one's work is limitless as world-renowned and competent professionals sit in the jury and scrutinize every iota of detail of each entry. Together we are building the art market and strengthening the position of color photography in the art world.

Prize details: The international range of the competition and the prestige the winners receive will not only enrich the portfolio, but also stand out in the art world and the media. The winning entries awarded with gold, silver and bronze medals for each category will be presented both in the Gallery of Winners and the Official Book of Chromatic Awards. The photographers will also receive the right to use the winner badge and certificate.

Other than that, the winner among the professionals will receive $2,000 and the winner of the amateur category will get $1,000 as monetary awards on top of the media and magazine mileage mentioned above.
