It’s your time to shine! We reward your outstanding work!

SHINE Photo Award is an international online award. The best work will be awarded in these categories: maternity – newborn – child & family – and birth photography.

All submissions will be judged by an independent international jury of professional photographers with the focus on creative idea, technical skills and outstanding image effect.

The winners will receive our SHINE Photo Award emblem to show on their award winning work, divided into gold, silver and bronze emblem. The winning images will be published on the website and social media sites with the name of the photographer and link to their website to promote the photographers’ work and business.


Charity is a very important part of the SHINE Photo Award!

Not every child in the world is as fortunate as the children and families on the submitted images. There are many children in the world who don’t have enough to eat and drink, can’t afford education, don’t live in a safe environment or have only little chance of a long, safe and self-determined life.

That is why we give back and support charity organizations which take care of children, mothers and families in need. The charity organizations will be chosen and published on the website at the end of each year. Every participant in the SHINE Photo Award is welcomed to suggest a charity organization for the donations and we will take all ideas in consideration.
