International Photography Awards was conceived in 2001 by Hossein Farmani.
The idea of IPA was developed after many meetings and collaborations with the help and advice of the following friends:

Susan Baraz
Michaelle Burstin
Chris Davis
Jeff Dunas
Michelle Dunn
Graham Howe
Michelle Hill
Yildiz Kumru
Jim McHugh
Aya Tanimura
Glen Wexler

The staff of APA, ASMP, WIPI and SMPSP

And many others.

The entries I saw in the IPA this year were overwhelmingly of a consistently strong quality. Thus the few that stood above the rest had to be truly extraordinary to me. It was gratifying to see such good work and I congratulate those whose vision and imagination were of the highest order.
