HIPA 2018-2019 International Photography Award
‘Hope’ is an instinctive human emotion that helps push us towards positivity and optimism.
Hope is also considered to be a rare human value that is shared and encouraged by various civilisations and cultures; be it ideologically, intellectually or socially.
It is also a universal language, reflected in the everyday lives of the people it connects. Some people have a talent for spreading hope in a way that makes others happy while reducing the negativity around them.
Do you believe in the presence of hope? Then you can and try and capture a special moment portraying its beauty this coming season.
