Announcing the 2023 Awards recipients

Join us as we celebrate the 2023 recipients

For 145 years the RPS Awards have recognised significant individuals working across both the still and moving image, as well as those using photography. 

The Awards celebrate significant achievements, showcase new and emerging talent, and highlight notable contributions; they also recognise the work of RPS volunteers who help deliver its programmes. The 2023 recipients’ work is a testament to the power of photography to inspire, uplift, incite change and bring about personal, social, and cultural wellbeing.
