The Event Photography Awards
How the EPA’s teamed up with Splento for an award night to remember
The Event Photography Awards celebrate the photographers who capture the most memorable moments. See how teaming up with Splento helped promote the quality of the brand, as well as post-event press.
How EPA Uses Splento
Three photographers covering one four-hour session - two for general event photography and one for Headshots! A total of 593 images were professionally retouched and provided in 24 hours.
Returned in 2019 for the EPAs with two Photographers covering the four-hour session. Splento provided a total of 271 retouched images including headshots and general photos from the reception and awards.
Photographs from the event were uploaded every hour, re-touched and sent back as an online gallery for attendees to view during the event.
Q&A with Graham
What is your name and what is your title?
Graham Hill — Event Director at Event Photography Awards
What were your aims for The Event Photographer's Awards this year and did you achieve them?
Improving the awareness of the competition’s founding sponsors (Staffing Agency, Off To Work) and the competition itself, while also improving awareness of the competition as a whole through PR etc. This was largely achieved by prefixing the founding sponsor’s brand to the competition, which are now the Off To Work Event Photography Awards... Entries were generally excellent, the awards night was a great success and post event press coverage was also extensive – fuelled by winning entries and excellent awards night event photography by Splento.
“Entries were generally excellent, the awards night was a great success and post event press coverage was also extensive – fuelled by winning entries and excellent awards night event photography by Splento.”
How important is visual content Splento provides to The EPAs?
As noted above, as the it’s a photography competition, post event press coverage is fuelled by both winning entries and awards night event photography. However, Splento’s visual content is essential for promoting the EPA brand in general (reflecting the quality of the awards night), as well as promoting attendance and generating ticket sales for the following year.
Apart from the visual content you received from us, were there any other features of the service that added value to your events?
The willingness and professionalism of Splento staff and operatives was pleasing and reassuring, while the speed of delivery of content after the event was highly impressive and much appreciated... Just all good, although we should probably explore using their range of services more fully and broadly.
