The British Photography Awards 2020: Limited Public-Access Tickets Announced

This February brings another opportunity to attend the lavish British Photography Awards at the stately Lancaster Ballroom of The Savoy hotel in central London. Select tickets are publicly available for purchase, either for individuals, groups or corporate entertainment. From the champagne reception to the mammoth after-party that finishes at 2am, there is something for everyone at the stately British venue.

All public tickets are sold on a first-come first-serve basis.

Join us at the national awards event that showcases and honours some of the best image-makers, artists and visual storytellers from around the world. The non-profit competition, (which closes for entries on October 31st) supports 20 UK registered charities and empowers photographers to create real change in the world using the power of incredible imagery. Also honoured are industry greats who have made special contributions to the sector. This hosted photographic showcase is an entertainment in itself, not to be missed.

Following on from last year's monumental black tie gala, this year we are going even further and pulling out all the stops, not just for our honourees but for every attendee. Having reached an audience potential of an incredible 840 million people last year it looks like we certainly did something right, but there is always room for improvement! Why not come and be part of it? Why not enjoy your February for a change? Get a group together, come and see some incredible imagery, meet some fantastic people and enjoy the world famous Savoy hospitality!

New for 2020, a wait list is being kept once The British Photography Awards Gala is fully booked in case of cancellation, however this does not guarantee admission. All public tickets are offered on a first-come first-served basis.

Split Level Pricing Ensures The Event is Extra Accessible:

As a national interest arts awards, our publicly available tickets for The British Photography Awards are offered in two tiers.

Premium Tier Tickets:

The higher tier includes bottomless drinks options with dinner (champagne, cocktails etc) as well as preferential seating, in closer proximity to the stage. These tickets have more celebrity-level guests in proximity, but we ask that you please be respectful of their private space and considerate of their enjoyment.

Standard Level Tickets:

The lower tier does include champagne reception and some wine with dinner, but no 'bottomless' alcohol options – although drinks are always available via the full service bar (via table service). Simply ask a member of our serving staff and they can bring over a card machine, or accept cash.

NOTE* All attendees get served the same sumptuous menu and have access to all the same activities on the night.

The Photography Awards Limited is a VAT registered company and all public ticket sales are offered inclusive of VAT costs. VAT receipts available on request.
