The 2020 Call for Entries Document is here!

We’ve made a number of exciting changes to the 2020 Nikon Iris Awards online.




*Reduced entry costs!

Going online for the 2020 Nikon IRIS AWARDS means – no print costs, no delivery costs, and no handling fee! This also means we are able to reduce entry costs significantly.


*No limit to number of entries!

For the 2020 Iris Awards Only: There is no limit to the total number of entries, or the number of entries per category, an entrant can submit (including the Student Category).



*No time limit on when the entry was taken!


Due to current photography limitations, the 24 month timeframe requirement on image capture has been removed. For 2020 only, there is NO restriction on the timeframe in which an image, or images in the case of composites, has been photographed.



*NEW AWARD – Category Highest Scoring Entry Award


A new award to celebrate the entry that receives the highest score within each individual category. The winner is awarded the title, a certificate and digital decal to promote their win.
