The SUN Awards showcases and rewards the very best photography produced each year by professional photographers based in the northern regions of the UK. 2014 marks the 26th year the awards have been held.


The awards are a not-for-profit event run by photographers for all those who work with, purchase or commission photography.

The role of the App is to be a companion piece to compliment the two annual exhibitions held in Manchester and Leeds and the printed catalogue. The app presents us with the opportunity to show the work to an even wider audience, by broadening the horizons of the SUN Awards we hope to introduce exceptional talent to the widest audience possible. This provides more commercial opportunities for photographers and builds on the north’s reputation for creative excellence.

Turning the Awards catalogue into the iPad format has added an exciting new dimension whilst allowing us to celebrate the quality of the imagery submitted.

The ultimate objective is to support, promote and champion the wide variety of talented, inspiring photographers, putting their work and passion at the heart of the app.
