New music photography awards launched

By | Published on Friday 27 January 2023 Music Photographer Of The Year 2023 – a platform that “connects photographers, fans and musicians with images and stories from concerts, festivals and events” – has announced the launch of a new awards scheme celebrating music photography.

Six awards will be presented in total as part of the Music Photographer Of The Year Awards, including two where anyone can put forward photos and photographers for consideration.

Though, not all the awards will be specifically celebrating those involved in photographing musicians and shows, with prizes also set to be presented to the artists and venues being photographed, with a “Must See” Artist Of The Year category and an Independent Venue Of The Year prize.

Says CEO Vince Bannon: “At, we believe the art of music photography should be celebrated. We started to do just that, I’m therefore THRILLED to announce our inaugural Music Photographer Of The Year awards and super excited to see where the event takes our fantastic community of creators”.

Meanwhile, the firm’s Head Of Partnerships UK, Adam Perry, adds: “Shining a light on the amazing work of music photographers around the world has always been what is all about. From tiny club gigs to the biggest festivals, these creatives work tirelessly to create the image of music, and with the Photographer Of The Year Awards, we want to recognise the talent, the dedication and the relentless pursuit of the perfect image that drives the photographers that we all love”.

People can put forward photos and photographers for consideration now, with the awards set to be presented on 27 Mar.
