SUN has been showcasing the best photography since 1988 and is one of the most important sources of reference for all commissioners of photography, whether they are agencies, creatives, or corporate buyers.
Now in its 29th year, SUN returns to the Gallery with it’s annual competition exhibition.
Entries were judged this year by Peter Mitchell.
There are 3 categories in SUN photography awards:

Shot Up North
The SUN Awards showcase and reward the best in professional photography.
It does this through an annual judged competition, the showcase SUN exhibition, with allied events and seminars highlighting photography generated in the Northern regions of the UK, within the disciplines of advertising, design, fashion and editorial.
SUN is run as a not-for-profit event by photographers for the mutual benefit of the industry, and the awards are judged anonymously by an independent panel drawn from key figures in Photography. The awards are open to all professional photographers in the ‘northern regions‘ (from the Midlands to the Scottish Isles), and working in the required disciplines. The event has been showcasing the best photography since 1988, and is one of the most important sources of reference for all commissioners of photography, whether they are agencies, creatives, or corporate buyers.
