Throughout the world, skilled photographers with their own unique styles have used the medium of photography to capture the most authentic stories.
“Photo of the Day” shares these wonderful stories, from the purist’s perspective, with descriptions that one can feel from the heart.
Started in June 2010, as a monthly contest, Photo of the Day Award consisted of 26 intricacies of photography,
and the essence of the award lies in its core, the journey that gives one an understanding of people, nature, and culture. This timeless venture made it one of the most prestigious awards that a genuine photographer dreams to achieve.
From Islamic to spiritual, abstract to architectural, black and white to color, portraiture to landscape, and documentary to wildlife, there are 26 photography fields, and each has its own story to tell, one which goes deep beyond the frame.
The moments we share through this award are always special, iconic for present and the generations to come.
With its presence from one continent to the next, from the highest point of earth, to the surface of the oceans, from the farthest points west, to the farthest points east. From the extreme adventurous environment, to the busy market downtown, from the top of the highest man-made building, or the most remote villages, to where the touch of human life and civilization reaches, Photo of the Day is there…
Just like you, we are explorers, and we are here to create a bond, based on making the world more open and connected with your photographs. It is about seeing and portraying the world through the lens using a purist’s perspective. This means, the award is for photographer’s that do not edit or alter.
This award is for creating opportunities to express one’s unique vision, where you can join hands and continue this journey together.
