Watch Photo Awards: Your watch deserves some sport and a vacation

After the themes White in February, Baselworld in March, Green in April and Nature in May, the Watch Photo Awards continues its 2019 vintage with Sport in June and Vacation in July. Take part in the first international watch photo competition open to the general public. If your photo is one of the ten selected by the jury on each monthly theme, it will then be published in media around the world and exhibited, as was the 2018 selection of 60 photos admired by visitors to Geneva’s Musée d’art et d’histoire, followed by Miami Watches & Wonders and Baselworld. New horizons await the 2019 traveling exhibition. And if the public chooses your photo from the selection of ten shortlisted each month, you will win a dream stay in a fabulous location (see the list of sponsors below).


To make its monthly selection among all the photos received on, the jury of experts bases its judgement on the criteria of creativity, technicality and respect for the theme. A smartphone may be sufficient, as long as the photo is sent in a non-compressed version. Register on the site to be kept informed of the next topics, if you missed Sport in June (photo of a mechanical sports watch, or a mechanical watch in a sports environment) or the Vacation theme in July (ideal mechanical watch for vacation, or taken in a vacation environment).
