"PhotoShoot Awards is a series of online photography competitions that captures emotion in images based on themes which are thought provoking and which convey contemporary perceptions of current world issues. The competitions focus on several different themes showcasing categories of photographs which rarely receive the attention or interest they deserve.
"An initiative by Productions Hors cadre Inc. (Montreal, Quebec), the PhotoShoot Awards competitions will feature the best photos in each category and provide international visibility to photographers and their work.
"The PhotoShoot Awards-NUDE2021
competition showcases the best artistic nude portraits in the world.
"The nude portraits selected by PhotoShoot Awards
are neither obscene, nor pornographic, nor violent. The photographs will focus primarily on emotion, beauty
and a sense of freedom
, though the portraits may also be provocative
"Selection criteria include the quality of the shot
, composition, originality
. The nudity represented in the photos may be full, partial, wholly revealed or merely suggested. Whatever the subject or type of photograph submitted: women, men, families, couples or groups; photos taken in situ or in a studio; digital or analog photos; black and white or colour; computer-enhanced digital photos or digitised prints, the principal selection criteria for the competition is that the photograph captures the emotion
of the moment.
"Many professional fashion photographers
, portrait photographers
or even wedding photographers
take nude photographs either in the course of their work or in their free time. So, whether you are a professional, a semi-professional or an enthusiastic amateur we invite you to participate in our first competition
by submitting your nude portraits taken within the past five years
