Run in partnership with Surfing Australia, the awards are open to Australian residents who can submit their best images and videos taken in 2020. There is a maximum of three photo entries per photographer and two video entries per videographer.

A panel of thirteen high-profile individuals within the surfing industry will be tasked with judging the entries to determine the best single surfing-themed photo and video. Among the judging panel is seven-time World Surfing Champion and Nikon Brand Ambassador, Stephanie Gilmore.

John Young, General Manager, Marketing for Nikon Australia said, “The Australian surfing community delivers awe-inspiring shots for the Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year Awards year after year. We are particularly excited to see what they have been able to capture from last year, as they explored inspiration closer to home, capturing Australia’s beautiful waves.”

The winner of both categories will take home a new Nikon Z 6II and NIKKOR Z 24 – 70 f/4 S lens.

Creators can submit their entries via, with submissions closing on Friday, 15th March 2021.
