Even more recognition and awards –

An exclusive contest for winners of the AFNS AWARD

Yes, its true – We are the first and only contest that judges & awards your submissions in 24 hours. We created the AAPC to give all members and enthusiasts of AFNS AWARD even more opportunities to gain recognition and prestige through further great awards, badges and certificates. Only winners and placed winners of the AFNS AWARD 2017 – 2021 have the possibility to submit pictures to the AAPC. We would like to help these photographers to receive even more appreciation through this extended contest and thereby reward their loyalty over the last 5 years AFNS AWARD.

The main goal and motivation to join the AAPC are the great prizes from our generous sponsors, the certificates, medals and trophies, publications in our official magazine and the title “AAPC PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2022” which will be rewarded with a prize money of €2000.

The total value of money and goods given to members by the AAPC and its sponsors in 2022 exceeds the incredible sum of €15,000
