2023 International Photography Competition

February 2 @ 8:00 am - April 3 @ 5:00 pm


The International Photography Competition is a time-honored tradition that has been held for over two decades. This flagship effort from FMoPA commemorates its commitment to keeping photographic art central to everyday life and culture, calling photographers from around the world to showcase their art. 

Submitted images will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact, artistic merit, and as otherwise determined by the panel of renowned judges. Last year, FMoPA received thousands of submissions, from which 21 were chosen to be held in its Community Gallery exhibition. In preparation for another massive submission wave, FMoPA has tripled its panel of judges to accommodate the trend of growing submissions it has seen each year. Three winners will be chosen from each category along with a “Best In Competition” winner selected from all submitted photographs. The categories are:

  • Plane/Air Travel Photography
  • People/Portraits
  • Places/Landscape
  • Nature/Science/Animals
  • Documentation/Photojournalism
  • Still Life
  • Abstract Photography

FMoPA is excited to announce its sponsorship from Tampa International Airport for this year’s competition. This exhibition is an excellent way for both institutions to follow their mission of bringing different cultures and peoples together. In celebration of this sponsorship, this year’s contest will feature a new category, Plane/Air Travel Photography. Winners from each category and the “Best In Competition” winner will be hosted in an exhibition at TPA from June 12 to August 18, 2023. The winners showcased at TPA will be exposed to nearly 60,000 visitors each day.
