Each year, photographers from around the world submit the best work that they have produced in the previous year for the consideration of our jury. Selected work is published in the Photography Annual, a special double issue of CR's November edition.
This year's categories:
Self-initiated or experimental work which has not been commissioned or published.
Work commissioned by advertising agencies including posters and press ads.
Photography shot specifically for and/or art directed by photolibraries.
Work commissioned by design consultancies for packaging, annual reports, record sleeves, books and any other use.
Commissioned photography for magazines and newspapers including fashion.
Moving Image Category
Moving image pieces by photographers (no film directors please) that were either shot as part of a wider project involving both still and moving image or were standalone pieces.
Best in Book
This is our ultimate award, equivalent to best in show. The judges will choose their selection of the very best entries from the other categories to feature in the Best in Book section where the work will be given extra space and an editorial write-up. The Best in Book work will also feature on the Creative Review iPad App.
