Bentley will sponsor this year’s International Automotive Photography (IAP) Awards, following the success of 2020 debut which saw entrants from 47 different countries and over 4,000 photo entries submitted. Co-sponsoring this year’s awards alongside Bentley are Gyeon, Unimatic and Think Tank.
The IAP Awards aim to promote the best automotive photography, bringing together a passionate community of like-minded people and showcasing a variety of talent and creative works.
It is opened to amateurs as well as professionals, and with six submission categories, participants have the chance to submit as many photographs as they wish, for the chance to win fantastic prizes from global sponsors.
Bentley’s Director of Communications, Wayne Bruce, who will be involved as a guest-judge for the Car Spotter category, says:
“For many of us, spotting beautiful cars on the streets was where a passion for automotive started from a very young age. In celebrating these impromptu, candid, captures, the IAP Awards is reminding aspiring creatives that automotive photography is an accessible art form and that anyone with a camera – smartphone or otherwise – can get out there and shoot on the streets, whether you have the keys to a car or not.”
Other categories available for entry are Atmosphere, Beauty, Motorsport, Phone Photography and Amateur. These categories will be judged by co-founders and established photographers, Hedi Sersoub, Amy Shore and Drew Gibson, along with a panel of renowned photographers and automotive experts.
Each submission will be carefully observed and many shared across the IAP Awards’ social media accounts in the lead up to the winners being announced.
The winner of the overall awards will receive a Fujifilm XT4 + Kit lens, a full detailing kit, Unimatic watches of choice, a camera bag from Think Tank and a Bentley experience, alongside the chance to host their own exhibition in London.
The awards are open for entries until 30 November 2021. Entries can be made via the IAP website. All work will be reviewed in January 2022, and the winners will be announced in February 2022.
