Production Paradise launches Spotlight Awards for Photographic Excellence with prestigious international judge panel


Production Paradise has launched the Production Paradise Spotlight Awards for Photographic Excellence 2018  – a competition with a unique focus on advertising photography talent.

No other awards have created a judges’ panel that is solely filled with potential clients for commercial photographers.

That is exactly what Production Paradise is all about – great imagery in front of great creatives,” says Catherine Delaloye, the General Manager of Production Paradise.

  • Cars
  • Corporate & Industrial
  • Fashion
  • Food & Drink
  • Kids
  • People & Lifestyle
  • Portrait & Celebrity
  • Sport
  • Still Life
  • Travel, Documentary & Landscape

There are also two special categories: Shot on Mobile (Capturing an Authentic Moment) and Student (Every Picture Tells a Story).

Each category will have a single winner and all 50+ judges will choose a Grand Prize winner from the professional categories. There are over $60,000 worth of prizes, throughout 15 categories, with a chance for one photographer to win over $19,000 in prizes, including $5000 cash.

This is the first year of the Awards for Production Paradise.
