Welcome to the Silver Lining Awards

In 2020, the year of Covid-19, AIPP had to find the silver lining when our in-person print awards were all cancelled (sob!). The Silver Lining Awards were born and with 3000 entries and a prize pool valued at $45,000 generously donated by amazing sponsors, the awards were a resounding success.

In 2021 - we're BACK!

And this time, the SLAs are open to all AIPP members, the general public and international entrants and we cannot wait to see more of your incredible imagery.

Features of the 2021 Silver Lining Awards for all entrants include:

  • A new, streamlined entry system
  • Judging by AIPP-trained judges and international guest judges
  • More feedback: scores and written comments for every entry
  • Top 25 Semi-Finalists and Top 10 Finalists announced in every category and featured on our website
  • Fabulous prizes in every category from 1st to 3rd place

Whilst the SLAs are open to all photographers anywhere in the world, AIPP members receive some great perks not available to non-members:

  • One FREE entry for every member: Accredited, General and Student
  • One entry per member selected for live online judge feedback sessions
  • Live online Image Critique sessions with AIPP judges

Start planning now to create some brand-new work and/or review your image collections (the five-year rule still applies!) to find some hidden gems to wow the judges at SLA 2021.

See you in the new year!

Open to all!
