BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL FOTO AWARDS is an international platform for photographers from all levels and genres to share their best images with the creative community in Hungary and Eastern Europe. We acknowledge the power of even a single photograph to greatly influence an audience, and how the artistic eye of the photographer behind the camera can interpret a scene in so many creative ways. We know that every image has a story to tell, and this is the place to tell it!

The competition is open to everyone and we invite photographers from all over the world to take part and enter their work.

Budapest International Foto Awards is a sister competition to both the Moscow and Tokyo International Foto Awards. Take a moment to check out these affiliated competitions and increase your exposure around the world by submitting your work there as well.
