The reFocus Awards were created to celebrate the lasting power and indomitable spirit of the photographic image and its unique ability to communicate ideas, captivate viewers, and express artistic intention. Our goal is to elevate, honor, and promote incredible talent at all levels by offering a platform for discovery and advancement in the photography world. With prizes that uplevel your practice no matter where you are in your career, this contest supports the artists behind the strongest and most distinctive images in photography today. Beyond our awards, reFocus offers a novel, artist-first online gallery designed to not only share the unique power of photography but to encourage the discovery of artists and the stories behind the winning images.
What Makes this event different?
Photographers who win the reFocus Awards get to enjoy more than prizes, as we actively promote and celebrate our honorees throughout the year and beyond.
