Now in its sixth year, the EPAs were founded by Philip Atkins, managing director of staffing agency, Off To Work, and this year’s sold out awards event welcomed 250 guests viewing nearly 100 shortlisted photographs across 12 categories.

"The events industry needs great photography not only to sell itself, but also to amplify the impact and thereby the validity of events," said Philip Atkins, EPA founder & MD, Off To Work.

"The EPAs celebrate the often unsung work of the photographers that capture the energy and essence of events, along with all the elements that go into producing successful events, from to behind-the-scenes production and the venues where they are held, to the catering and the staff that serve it."

Andrew Whitton, runner-up in 2019 and overall winner in 2018 added: "Events, whatever size or budget, rely on strong imagery and these awards prove that everyone involved in putting on a show is as important as the rest. Many things and people go unnoticed, but our photographs wouldn’t be the same without them."

Summit by Noah Goodrich won the Corporate category

Brushbeard by Benjamin Arthur won the Tradeshows and Exhibitions category
