About the contest

What changes when we switch to infrared, and which things remain constant? What beauty lies in the light that our eyes can’t see? We want the infrared photography community to answer these questions and more with complete photo essays as well as individual shots. Prizes will be awarded across 6 categories of infrared photography, and include over $11,000 in cash and infrared photography gear, with a grand prize of $1,000 cash + $1,000 of infrared photography equipment awarded to ‘Best Infrared Photo Essay’. Prizes will also be awarded to one visible light photo essay and one visible light photo per applicable category! We want to help the Infrared community grow, and each Visible Light winner will receive a Kolari Vision gift card for infrared conversion services and gear!
