Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) 2016-2017

ENTER CONTEST

Building on a five-year tradition of inspiring artistic and intellectual talents to propagate the true spirit of photography and highlight its crucial role in the creation of a culture, as well as giving recognition to innovators worldwide, HIPA resumes its journey with you today to declare “Challenge” as the main theme category for the Sixth Edition of the Awards. This choice of category is meant to provoke photographers’ inner thoughts and life impressions in search for the visuals that give expression to the meaning of challenge as they understand it from their own experience, and the individuality through which they treat it through the lens of a camera.

The Challenge will be the main theme of this year.
The Other categories are: General, Digital Manipulation and Portfolio.
The General Category will have two sub categories “Color” and “ Black and White”
Participants are allowed to submit a Black and White Photograph in all categories except the General Color sub category.
