Life in Another Light | Infrared Photography Contest 2022

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? What do new perspectives show us about our world that only photography can capture? We want to see what the best of infrared and regular photography can show us. Winners will be chosen across 10 categories and include $51,000 in prizes! There are 3 dedicated IR categories, 2 dedicated visible light categories, and 5 categories that are open to all photography!
