HIPA 2020-2021 International Photography Award

ENTER CONTEST

The Hamdan International Photography Award (HIPA) is an international photography award, founded in 2011 under the patronage of crown prince of Dubai sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid bin Mohammed al Maktoum.

This year, the main theme of the HIPA contest is HUMANITY. One of the most important subjects that is closely observed within the photography world is ‘Humanity’ - a message that loyally binds the people of this planet together.

Photographing the human race has both a profound and powerful impact in inspiring change such as saving millions of lives from diseases, epidemics and disasters as well as wars and its devastating effects.

A photograph details everything. It has the ability to disturb as well as convey its content to audiences around the world in order to connect to their humanity and awareness.

Can a photo impact society? Are you moved when the depth of humanity touches you and reaches her arms around the globe?

We invite you to share the human spirit through photography, and inspire the world with your story of humanity.
