AI-AP / American Photography 40 Call For Entries

The annual AI-AP juried awards, celebrated for their ability to bestow significant visibility and well-deserved recognition across pivotal realms, persist in their tradition of grandeur, presenting awe-inspiring hardcover editions. Staying true to their founding ethos, these awards steadfastly honor exceptional photographers and illustrators, magnificently showcasing both commissioned and avant-garde personal work. Furthermore, they extend appreciation to the publications, creatives, and agencies instrumental in selecting and utilizing the award-winning images. Embracing an inclusive ethos, students and schools are celebrated alongside established and emerging artists.

Established in 1982 by a committee of esteemed illustrators and art directors, AI-AP emerged as a distinct alternative to leading organizations and companies of the time, perceived as overlooking unconventional, "cutting-edge" work produced by unsung artists pushing the boundaries of commercial art.
