Why not be different?

The Outstanding Maternity Award is exclusively dedicated to the family and maternity photographer.

Our concept is now replicated in more than 6 countries.

Since 2014 our goal has been turning the spotlight on the most talented photographers around the world.

So far, more than 63 countries are present in the Outstanding Maternity Award, where many photographers are standing out from the crowd in their local, national and international segments.

We want to show the world all your creative, touching and unique ways to photograph.

Be different. Be Outstanding!
