I am delighted to be launching the inaugural Magnolia Rouge Photo Awards for 2018. With an abundance of talent in this industry I wanted to acknowledge and reward all your beautiful results from the year. Magnolia Rouge has always championed beautiful wedding and lifestyle photography and I can’t wait to see all of your entries.
The competition will be open from January 7th-28th 2019. This is the only period that you’ll be able to access the entry form to submit your images. Your entries will be judged anonymously (images will initially be logged by a third party before being presented to the three judges to assess) and winners will be announced in late February. There will be a winner, runner-up and readers choice winner for each of the six categories as well as the grand prize of Magnolia Rouge Photographer of the Year 2018 awarded. Both film and digital images will be accepted.
