    TZIPAC is excited to launch the 3rd Eros Photography Award. This is an international juried competition that celebrates the magic of fine art nude photography, honouring the finest in classic and contemporary nude photography and artworks from around the world.

    There are four categories:

    Erotic/Provocative/Sensual
    Fine Art and Open
    Lines, Curves and Shapes
    Portrait and Editorial

    The Fine Art and Open category is not just to allow the freedom of interpretation and subject choices, but also open to different medium, such as painting, digital art, etc.

    Entrants are encouraged to explore their own unique understanding of the meaning and boundaries of what constitutes "Fine Art Nude photography". However, submitted artworks must not move beyond the boundaries of consenting sexuality. All models who are featured in submitted artworks must be 18 years old and over.

    Images must be in JPG/JPEG format, 8 bit, 1500pixels on the longest side, 72 dpi, and have maximum file size of 300KB. Colour space should be RGB or sRGB. Images must have no border, nor marks or logos identifying the artists.

    There is a two phase entry fees system, designed to encourage a broader range of participants:

    • Stage 1: Initial entry fee is only $1 per image.
    • Stage 2: Additional entry fee for qualifying in Stage 2 Judging is just $20 per image with total fees capped at $100. In other words, once you reconfirm 5 images for Stage 2 Judging, any extra entries are reconfirmed free.

    Eligibility


    Any photographers over the age of 18 from around the world can enter.
