Update: World Photography Day Contest dates extended! You’re right on time—Submissions close September 19.


World Photography Day 2022 is August 19, and for the second year in a row, we’re celebrating with a multi-category photo contest! This year, besides some fantastic prizes, we will have a new, special category dedicated to virtual photography. Are your photos ready for the spotlight?

The categories for this year’s World Photography Day contest are:

Nature: Give us your view of the natural world, whether that’s aerial shots, landscapes, underwater, astrophotography, weather, or anything else based in nature.

People: ​​Get ready for your close-up with photos of fashion, portrait, wedding, family, travel, street, documentary, and more.

Animals: Put your four-legged friends (or six-legged, or winged!) in the spotlight, with a category focused on pets, wildlife, and insects.

Objects and structures: Show us your unique vision with this category made for architecture, abstract, still life, and other objects and gadgets of the photography world.

Virtual: Bring digital worlds to life with our virtual photography category, encompassing digital avatars, in-game photography, screen captures, and more.

How to enter?

To join the fun, add up to five (5) photos to the World Photography Day Contest 2022 group photo pool and tag them with one of the following category tags: WPD22Nature, WPD22People, WPD22Animals, WPD22Objects, or WPD22Virtual—depending on which category or categories you are entering. ​​One category tag per entry, please! The contest will remain open until September 19, 2022, and winners will be announced on or about September 22, 2022.
