Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize 2022: INPRNT Photography Award Finalists Announced

With the judging complete, we are thrilled to share the 25 INPRNT Photography Award Finalists of this year’s Art Prize! As you will see, the calibre of work is excellent and perfectly captures the diverse aesthetic of modern fine art photography.

We received entries from both analogue and digital photographers working across various fine art photography styles. Using cutting edge camera, lens, housing, and lighting equipment, each photographer has shared their exceptional creative vision in unique ways. Brands and resources used include: Nikon, Canon, PhaseOne, Sigma, Hasselblad, Kodak, Pentax, Sony, Volna-3, Polaroid, Ricoh GR III, Adobe Lightroom, Light, Lumecube, Olympus, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Profoto, Nikkor, Godox, Pentax, Kiev 60, Volna-3, Broncolor, Lomography, Softbox, Mamiya, Sekor, Elinchrom and iPro Max. Additionally, many photographers hand built their own scenes and backgrounds, which we thoroughly enjoyed!

We have received many phenomenal entries again this year and the caliber is higher than ever! Myself and the team are blown away. Picking the Finalists won’t be easy.


Many digital photographers now use a combination of camera and mobile phone hardware. The mobile phone brands included: Google, iPhone, Nokia, and Samsung to name a few. For post processing work entrants largely used: Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
