No.4 Hamilton Place is pleased to announce that entries are open for the annual Off To Work Event Photography Awards 2020, which will again, for the 7th year, celebrate the fabulous work of the often unsung event photographers who provide organisers with inspiring content that enables them to amplify the empirical impact of events, thereby doing much to justify the budgets spent on them.
The event will again be held at the sumptuous Mayfair venue, with superb catering by Blue Strawberry, on Tuesday 5th May.
The overall winner gets a cheque for £1,000, but there’s plenty of kudos to be gained from reaching the rostrum of one of the sixteen categories which cover Catering, Christmas Parties, Conferences, Brand Activations and Experiential Events; also Exhibitions, Venues and Weddings; plus Cultural, Private, Music and Sporting Events. Behind the Scenes is always a hotly-contested category, while an exciting new one for 2020 is Fashion Events.
There are also trophies for the Best Amateur, Best Portfolio and the People’s Choice, chosen by guests at the highly-enjoyable awards evening, which all short-listed photographers are invited to attend. Entries close on 9th March and will be judged by a plethora of event industry luminaries. Visit the EPA website for more information and to view galleries of the top shots from the past six years.
Founder of the awards, Philip Atkins, MD of staffing company Off To Work commented: “We deliver these non-commercial awards to promote and celebrate the stunning photography that captures and magnifies the exceptional creativity within the events industry, and to highlight the ability of events to generate so many of life’s memorable moments.”
Competition director, Graham Hill, echoed those sentiments: “The EPAs continue to grow, in terms of both stature in the industry and overall size, with 2020 seeing more categories, sponsors, judges and hopefully entries than ever before. Indeed, we urge organisers to review their 2019 portfolio and submit inspiring shots of their best events.”
