Competition: Enter the Great Outdoors

We are excited to introduce the second annual Bridgeman Studio Award to uncover new creative talent for the archive


We are delighted to announce the launch of our second annual Bridgeman Studio Award. Join us on the journey to find the best creative talent for licensing as we prepare for launch on April 15th.

Bridgeman Studio continues to make great strides in sourcing and nurturing the best contemporary creatives for image licensing. To celebrate this, we have put together a stellar line-up of prizes, judges and sponsors for our 2015 competition. Our partners will help us choose winning imagery which best reflects talent, market trends, and most importantly, provides us with imagery that matches the needs of Bridgeman's clients.
