“The participants are not allowed to send images that have already been awarded by other associations.”
Maintaining a standard that is different from all other competitions, Inspiration Awards has been growing in prestige as the only one to award unprecedented images. As no participant may send images that have already been awarded by other associations, Inspiration Photographers continually attracts photographers from all over the world as they understand that this rule makes the competition more challenging and fair. Because more experienced photographers that may already have a great collection of awarded images are not allowed to compete with these same ones at Inspiration Awards, they must therefore continually produce new pictures that are able to inspire and be deserving of this international prize.
The first directory for wedding photographers and videomakers in Brazil is today one of the largest and most respected ones in the world. With a little over three years of existence, it has conquered an expressive position internationally.
July 10th is the deadline for sending your images for the 15th Edition of Inspiration Awards, among the best wedding photographers and videomakers in the world.

The Best Wedding is a new feature that answers to the desires of many photographers, that is, to award the whole work of the photographer, who is allowed to send a group of 20 images of the same wedding ceremony.
The Inspiration Family Award is also an unprecedented award at an international level that attracts even more people to Inspiration Photographers, besides adding value to family photographers, which keeps growing each day.
The Golden Lens Award, known as ‘the Oscar of wedding photography and filmmaking’, is going to its fourth year and has revolutionized the market and the opinion of many concerning wedding photographers and videomakers.
