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.

Share with us the images you’ve taken that capture the brilliance and diversity of color in the following categories:

  1. Abstract
  2. Architecture
  3. Fine Art
  4. Nature
  5. Portrait
  6. Street Photography

The entries of the IPA Oneshot photography contest – Colors will be evaluated by a selected group of the prestigious IPA Jury Panel which has over 80 world-renowned gallerists, photo editors and directors, collectors, photographers, and other photography luminaries.

The IPA Oneshot photography contest – Colors is a single-image online photo competition where you can only submit one image per entry. A series of images cannot be entered. However, there is no limit to the number of entries you can submit, so you can submit as many images as you would like as separate entries.

Unlike the annual International Photography Awards (IPA), there are no separate categories for professional and non-professional / student photographers.

If you want to learn more about the rules and submission process, please visit the IPA Oneshot Terms & Conditions page or contact the Official IPA Support Team.
