The Irish Professional Photographer & Videographer of the Year Awards is the flagship event of the IPPVA calendar.

The Irish Professional Photographer and Videographer Awards run annually and are the showcase awards for our industry. Judged based on criteria of technical excellence, impact and creativity, the IPPVA awards have a crediblity that few other photography or videography awards in Ireland carry.

Our awards are judged anonymously by qualified and experienced panels of Irish and international judges, and only images that meet the highest standards can obtain an IPPVA award. As such, an IPPVA award is a mark of excellence for any individual piece of work, or a body of work.
