THE IPA ONESHOT WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!
THIS YEAR THE IPA ONESHOT THEME WAS COLOR!
Color is a medium through which artists can express their internal processes, and it is also a universal language through which emotions and feelings can be communicated and understood.
There is no doubt that we have gone through some dark times, but color and light are always present in our world, shining even more brightly against the backdrop of our struggles. So we turn our focus—and our cameras—on all that is bright and colorful in our world.
