Congratulations to the 2014 Proify International Award Winners!

In 2014, the world saw the establishment of an entirely new international photography contest – the Proify Awards. The awards sought to discover and expose passionate, talented, emerging photographers from all around the globe and Proify succeeded.

An overwhelming number of incredibly gifted photographers became Proify members in 2014. Collectively, they represented 34 different countries from all around the globe including Kenya, Ireland, Brazil, France, Denmark, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Naturally, it was incredibly difficult to judge photography that not only met but exceeded our highest expectations and whittle it down to just a few winners. However, after much deliberation we would like to congratulate the following:

1st Place – Stuart Chape

2nd Place – Achmad Sumawiiaya

3rd Place – Michael Pekasa

Check out our Category Winners. They’re truly inspirational.

The judging panel reviewed all the photos in each of the 8 categories (Landscape, Panoramic, Street, HDR, After Dark, Portrait, Wedding + Retro  and meticulously scored the photographs out of 100 (100 being a theoretical perfect capture) on several criteria such as sharpness, exposure, composition, lighting and uniqueness. Nonetheless, the wow factor was also an important element of the judging. It was a real challenge for the judges to pick only the best… of the best.

The Top 50 Images – All Categories

We receive tons of fabulous entries every single year and we’d love to reward them all but that’s simply not possible. We can however give credit where credit is due. Each year we narrow down the remaining top 50 submissions; the images that caught our attention but didn’t quite attain a prize. If your work is featured here you should feel honored, your talent and craft is truly inspirational. We’d love to see what you enter next.
