Event History

A flagship project of the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, the International Photography Competition has been running for two decades commemorating the museum's commitment to positioning photographic art as central to everyday life and culture.

Call for Entries for Photographers

The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is hosting an open call to photographers of all skill levels to participate in a worldwide photography competition, that is sponsored by Tampa International Airport. A jury of 10 experts will select the winners. Winning submissions will be notified by May 8th, 2023. 

The top entries will be exhibited at Tampa International Airport from June 12 - August 18, 2023. In celebration of this collaboration, FMoPA is introducing a new contest category, Plane/Air Travel Photography. Images will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact, artistic merit, and as otherwise determined by the jury panel.

For each category, three winners will be selected. An overall Best in Competition winner will be chosen from all submitted photographs for a grand cash prize of $1000. The Best in Categories will win at least $100 in goods and/or services. All 24 winning submissions will be printed for an exhibition at Tampa International Airport, where on average 60.000 people a day will pass through and have the opportunity to see the art!
