The concept of The RISE International Photography Awards was originally devised by Kelly Brown, one of Australia’s most recognised and successful newborn photographers.
We wish to see the standards RISE throughout the industry, allowing photographers at all stages in their photography career to become the best they can be.
Entry is open to all photographers worldwide.
The Maternity Category welcomes photographs of pregnant women. Images may contain other members of the family but the pregnant women must be the focus of the photograph.
The birth Category encourages images captured during labour, delivery and during the post-natal hours after the birth of a baby. Images may contain other members of the family.
The Newborn Category welcomes images of newborn babies photographed between 0-3 months of age. Images may contain other members of the family but the newborn must be the main focus of the photograph.
The Baby Category is for babies ages 3-12 months in age. Images may contain other members of the family but the baby must be the focus of the photograph.
The Children Category is specifically for children aged between 1 & 15 years. Images may contain other members of the family but the child must be the main focus.
The Family category is for families of 2 or more members. This category has no age limits.
Pet & Animal
The Pet & Animal category is for domesticated and wild animals. Images may contain humans; however, the animal must be the main focus of the entry.
The Portrait category is for one or more persons. This category has no age limits; however, images of babies and children may be better suited to categories specifically dedicated to those ages.
The Wedding category is for images taken during a commissioned, real wedding. For composite images, all elements of the entry must have been captured during the same wedding.
1st, 2nd & 3rd award winners from each category will receive a trophy and prizes from our sponsors.
