3rd Eros Awards

Fine Art Nudes

Highlighting the mystery and the beauty of artistic nudes.

TZIPAC is excited to launch The 3rd Eros Awards. This is an international juried competition that celebrates the magic of fine art nude photography. We seek to honour the finest in classic and contemporary nude photography and artworks from around the world. Up for grabs is the grand prize of US$2000, and our beautifully custom-made TZIPAC medals to be awarded to all 1st Place category winners.

  • EligibilityTOP

    Any photographers over the age of 18 from around the world can enter into The 3rd Eros Awards.


    How it works


    The 3rd Eros Awards' entry process is split into two stages.


    Stage 1 entry fee is just $1 per image with the judging being carried out by the TZIPAC Editorial team. The very low entry fee is designed to encourage a broader range of artists to participate, in the hope of discovering a multitude of marvelous artworks from budding undiscovered artists as well as established professionals, without geographic boundaries or limitations. Achieving a status of Stage 1 Accepted will allow you to promote your artwork with our simplistic E-badge.


    All Stage 1 Accepted images will be invited for ongoing submission to Stage 2 at a cost of $20 per image, with the total fees capped at $100. Stage 2 will be judged by our invited Juror(s) whose scores will determine the Finalists, Category Winners and the TZIPAC Fine Art Nudes Photographer of the Year.


    TZIPAC look forward to seeing and showcasing the diverse and numerous artworks that will be submitted, as well as the passionate flares and creativity of participating artists.
