This competition is open to all professional sports photographers, of all nationalities, whether they are freelance or linked to press/news agencies or those who work for a press title.
Entrants must be aged 18 or over at the date of the registration to the competition.
The competition is organised by the Association Festival Sportfolio. The contest is divided into 4 categories:
- Current Events/Action
This category celebrates images from recent major sporting events or images that capture the most actionfilled moments in sport, which can often otherwise go unnoticed.
The award celebrates topics relating to sport in society, the economics of sport, examples of sport on the front pages, women in sport, children and sporting traditions…
This award recognises the images that capture the most surprising, bizarre and ‘unusual’ aspect of sporting life.
This award recognises portraits of athlets or any sport person. A particular eye, a unique sensibility, a real signature of the photograph are the most important criteria of this category.
The winner will receive gold medal and Nikon D5 + optique 200-400.
