About the Watch Photo Awards

Your watch photo exhibited at the Geneva Museum of Art and History and your recognized talent in the major specialised media!

International contest

The Watch Photo Awards are the first annual international watch photography competition open to amateur watch lovers and professionals alike. Every month from February to July will have a different theme, and awards will be given to the photos that best meet the criteria of creativity, technical accomplishment and relevance to the theme.

Visibility in the major specialised media

Each month, the jury selects its ten favourite photos and publishes them. The public then vote for the one they think is the best, and the winner is awarded an exceptional prize of our partners. All the winning photos will be published by our media partners, as well as being featured in a special exhibition at the end of the year in Geneva, before travelling to other cities.

An exhibition at the Geneva Museum of Art and History

On the occasion of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève, the winning photographers will receive an invitation to attend the preview of the commemorative exhibition of 60 winning photos. The best photo of the year will be decided by a separate public vote. The winner will be awarded the WPA trophy, and will be invited to sit on the panel for the following year.
