What is Toy Photo Awards?

Toy Photo Awards is an International Toy Photography Contest which holds Toy photography competitions every month. The results of each Collection are published every month on the Website and Instagram page. Less then 10% of all photographs are chosen. At the end of each competition year (12 Awards) we publish the List of the best international Toy photographers.

I can't find my city in the list of cities during registration.

You can choose any other city in your country and register. After that you can e-mail us at info@toyphotoawards.com and we will add your city to our database, you can change it in your profile anytime.

Can photos uploaded for the previous collection be resubmitted for the next collections?

If you are sure that submitted images, which were not awarded, deserve being reconsidered, you may upload these photos for the next collection once again.

How many times can I participate in the awards?

You can participate every month. At the end of the competition year we count all awards and make a rating of the best Toy photographers worldwide.

Why my photos become darker after uploading?

All websites stripe the color profile because it is ignored by web browsers online, hence the color change. For getting rid of the image "color profile" with the help of Photoshop you should choose "file → save for web". The "save for web" in Photoshop or any editing program will read the information in the color profile and apply it to the image. After that you may upload images without losing colors.

How do I know that my photos are submitted?

After you upload images you should see them in your profile until the deadline. After the deadline they will be automatically submitted.

Can my studio name be used on the Winning logo?

No, only real name of a photographer should be used. You can write your Studio/Business name in your profile and it will be displayed during posting on the Website and Instagram. Please enter the contest using your real name. We will always display a credit alongside your photo as it appears on the Website and Instagram page. We do not accept photos with watermarks or descriptive text.

How can I get to the Top Toy Photographers List?

At the end of the year we count all the awards and make a rating of the best Toy photographers worldwide. If you are among photographers who won more awards since a year, you will be included to the list of top world best Toy photographers.

What about copyrights?

All uploaded photographs belong to their owners. We don't have the right and don't use it anywhere else, only on our Website and on our Instagram profile.
