MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS

The MUSE Photography Awards celebrates the creative ethos and underlying afternotes of what makes a photograph so influential. We want to see the ever-thriving visuals arts community grow from the view of their camera lens and share stories that will live on for decades to come.

From promoting the work of photography professionals to aspiring visual arts extraordinaires, our mission is to provide one of the best competitive platforms to display your work to the world.

Like the mythological Muses themselves, your ideas, expertise and creative vision will redefine who you are as a photographer. This is your time to share your vision to the world.

This is your picture-perfect moment.

2024 MUSE Photography Awards Statuettes

Illuminating Photographic Legacies

The 2024 MUSE Photography Awards bring into focus the intersection of unparalleled artistry and esteemed recognition. As light captures moments and stories in photographs, so do our MUSE statuettes capture the essence of various epochal periods and cultures that have left indelible impressions on the world of visual storytelling.

From the vivacious juxtaposition of Pop Art and Abstract to the serene confluence of Hawaiian and Polynesian aesthetics, and the undying splendor of ancient Egyptian craftsmanship, the MUSE statuettes are not just awards. They embody a harmony of art and acknowledgment, celebrating both the pioneering spirit of photographic artists and the reverence to the legacies they build upon. Peer deeper into the tales each statuette holds, as we honor the pinnacle of photographic prowess and the weaving of legacies for epochs yet to unfold.
