BJP’s Breakthrough Awards are all about seeking the world’s best photography students and recent graduates. The awards will be back in 2020.

We’ll be selecting four outstanding photographers to have their work presented in a group exhibition in east London, be published on BJP’s print, online and digital platforms, and receive expert advice on launching a successful career in photography.

If you’re a photographer working in any format, style or genre, you can enter our undergraduate or graduate categories, and have your work seen by our influential judging panel.

Handpicked from the photography, art and publishing industries, our judges will select a Series Award and Single Image Award winner in each category.

Photographers studying on undergraduate and graduate courses, or within five years of graduating, are invited to submit work. Students and graduates of non-photographic courses may also enter.


Breakthrough Award will return in 2020, stay tuned to our social media for more details!
