The awards are based on 14 categories to which the participants (photographers) are to submit their entries accordingly via the event’s website.
The submitted entries will be screened by a jury of five renowned Ghanaian professional photographers and photo critics after which four nominees will emerge per category.
The categories include architecture, aerial, conceptual, fashion, events, macro, people/lifestyle, special effects, portrait, night, tradition/culture, nature/wildlife, split second and wedding photography.
A press conference will be held to announce the scheduled date for the event, open the website for entry submissions, outdoor the jury and to acknowledge all partners and potential sponsors.
This award ceremony is tagged to be one of Ghana’s most prominent black tie events. Other side attractions will include cocktail, musical interlude, spoken word session and an exhibition of nominee photographs selected by the jury.
