LAUSANNE, 10, 2021 – AIPS is inviting all professional sports photographers to take part in the fourth edition of the AIPS Sport Media Awards in either the Sport Action category and/or the Portfolio category.

While the Sport Action category puts the spotlight on just one photo, the Portfolio requires a collection of  “at least three but no more than five sports photos”. The photos may be from the same sport or same event, or they may be from different events and different sports.

Participation is free and each person can submit a maximum of two submissions published between November 10, 2020 and October 4, 2021 for a chance to win 8,000 US Dollars for the first place, 3,000 US Dollars for the second place and 2,000 US Dollars for the third place.

Australian photographer Adam Pretty has dominated this category with two victories and one second place. His portfolio on sport climbing won the 2020 edition. Pretty captured some aspects of the sport, showing how it combines strength, flexibility, stamina and decisiveness, in a picture story photographed in Yangshuo, China at some of the most beautiful and challenging limestone sports climbing in the world.
