Album category

This award is for client or commissioned work designed for private viewing, most commonly event and portrait photography. Event photography can include weddings, engagements, formals, parties and graduations, while portrait photography can include couple, baby, individual, family, boudoir and pets. Be aware that the physical publication does not need to be an album, it may also be a book.  Judges assess photographic technique, lighting, posing, expression and composition as well as design, storytelling and production values.
