Eyes on Asia photography awards


Eyes on Asia Awards is an open call international photography competition, inviting entries in four categories: images of Asia and Oceania under the categories of People, Nature, Travel Folio and Sense of Place.

The Eyes on Asia Awards are looking for images that are positive, uplifting, inspiring, sometimes funny or quirky. Images that inspire the viewer to want to travel to unique and beautiful places across Asia & Oceania; Images that make you want to pack your bag, jump on a plane and disappear to an exotic island, a mountain range, or a jungle. We want images that show us something familiar, yet with a new perspective, and give the viewer a ‘sense of place’.

Cash prizes, holidays, experiences and other awards are on offer with one overall winner and category winners.
