Congratulations to the 2016 Proify International Award Winners!

The World’s best amateur and enthusiast photography competition was on again for the third time. 2016 has been a challenging year for the Proify Annual International Photography Awards but we are excited to announce the Winners of this exceptional edition.

Winning one of the Proify Awards is not just about going home with a prize but it’s also skill building and getting your work the recognition it deserves.

Without further adieu, the winners of the Proify Awards 2016 are…

1st Place – Alamsyah Rauf

2nd Place – Rossi Fang

3rd Place – Hamish Mitchell

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

The judging panel reviewed all the photos in each of the 12 categories (Landscape, Panoramic, Street, HDR, After Dark, Portrait, Wedding, Retro and the 4 new categories) 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 tonnes 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.
