The Lucie Awards

The photography community from countries around the globe will pay tribute to the most outstanding photography achievements presented at the gala ceremony, the Lucie Awards. Honors will be given for Lifetime Achievement, distinguishing some of the world’s greatest men and women whose life’s work in fashion, photojournalism, advertising, portraiture, sports, documentary and fine art photography, merit the highest acclaim by their peers. Each year, the Advisory Board nominates deserving individuals across a variety of categories which will be honored during the Lucie Awards ceremony. Once the nominations have been received, the votes are tallied and an honoree in each category is identified. The title winners of IPA: Photographer of the Year, Deeper Perspective, Discovery of the Year and Moving Images are announced at the Lucies and are awarded cash prizes and the Lucie Statue.

Lucie Statue – History

The statue was influenced by two photographers, Frantisek Drtikol and E. O. Hoppe. “Lucie” is the sculptural form inspired by the synthesis of two famous photographic images from the first half of the twentieth century. Taken from the Latin word, “lux” for “light”, Lucie is a tribute to the influence that light plays in photography. In the past years more than 50 top international photography masters have been honored by the Lucie Awards.

Best of Show Exhibition

Each year, the IPA will invite an established curator to select 45 images from both the professional and non-professional pools of 1st, 2nd, or 3rd winners to be exhibited in an exclusive show in New York City, during the week leading up to the Eleventh Annual Lucie Awards event. The Exhibition will then travel to various countries to be included in photo festivals, galleries, and other photography related events.

IPA Annual Book

The work of all first, second and third place winners, and the names of honorable mentions will be published in the high-quality, full-color, International Photography Annual Book.
