Judging for the awards was conducted over three days at the Digital Playground, which was held last weekend at Luna Park, Sydney. Thousands of images were entered and each image was scored out of 100.

“The Canon AIPP APPAs are the forefront of creative photography and, in essence, they reset the boundaries of expression through images,” said Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP) Executive Officer, Peter Myers.  “The competition is stronger than ever and saw more than 2,790 entries in total”.

2014 marks the 38th year of the Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPAs). The Awards are open to all Australian and overseas professional photographers. In addition to an overall winner, entries are also judged in sub-categories covering a range of specialisations.
