The European Product Photography Award
How you showcase product design projects is as important as the product itself – this is why we decided to shine the spotlight on the photographers behind the scenes! To support and honor the talented artists who help the product designers become winners in their industries, we created a Product Photography Award where our esteemed jury members will be judging the best there is in the world of product photography.

Rules & Requirements
The European Product Photography Award is open to anyone aged 18+ residing anywhere in the world. Professional entries will be judged against other professionals and student entries against other students.
The works must have been completed no more than 5 years from the time of submission in order to be eligible.
The jury will select the winners in each category based on individual project. Please make sure to upload at least one and no more than ten photographs, promoting the same product or concept and a single title. Ensure that your images work together as a whole, as different products will not be judged individually when entered as a series.
Up to 10 supporting images can be submitted with each work. An image can be a JPEG (.jpeg, .jpg) or PNG (.png). One image is for the cover photo to identify the entry and the remaining 9 are supporting images of the entry. Images must not exceed 4MB per file and a minimum of 1000 pixels wide. Please only use letters and numbers in the title of the image.
Copyright and all other rights remain with the designer. Any images used by ePDA shall carry the designer’s credit line. ePDA may use images in any media sponsor publication.

By winning or placing in the competition, you are agreeing to be included in the winner’s annual book.
