2022 Booooooom Photo Awards

Calling all photographers! We’re launching our first-ever Booooooom Photo Awards! There are 6 award categories to submit to: People, Places, Things, Climate Crisis, Community, Serendipity. Everyone is welcome to submit one image to these awards for FREE. Members enjoy unlimited submissions and unlimited images for all award categories. If you want to submit more than one image or compete in multiple categories, consider becoming a member here!

Don’t miss out! This is your chance to get your work seen – and not just by our own Booooooom community! In addition to the $3000 USD in cash prizes and bragging rights, all 6 winners (and 20 shortlisted photographers) will be featured in, and receive a copy of, a special mini photo publication. Designed specifically to showcase you/your work, this booklet will not be for sale but distributed exclusively to curators and editors we respect i.e. the people you want seeing it!


  1. PEOPLE – images with human subjects, portraits
  2. PLACES – this may include landscape, nature, or any image in which the setting is the focus
