ABOUT THE IPA ONESHOT / MOVEMENT PHOTO CONTEST
The late Indian Philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti, once said, “Life is a movement, a constant movement in relationship.”
This year’s IPA One-Shot special themed competition “MOVEMENT” looks at this concept through a photographer’s lens—movement in all aspects of life, showing change, development, movement and growth, in physical, political, social or artistic environments.
Send us your images that capture the essence of movement in the following 5 categories:
TECHNOLOGY – MACHINE
Under the current circumstances regarding COVID-19 and because many of you were not able to complete their work to submit it to the IPA’s special theme photo competition, “Movement”, we have decided to extend the submission period to April 30, 2020.
Submitted images will be viewed and judged by our distinguished panel of Jurors and entries will compete for $4,500 in total cash prizes. The Grand Winner will be selected from the category winners – meaning that the winning photographer will get the Category Winner Award and the Grand Winner Award as well. Photographers of all levels of expertise are welcome to enter.
Category winner: $500
Grand winner: $2,500
Total cash prizes: $4,500
In order to support and honour the outstanding work of both professional and amateur photographers around the world during the COVID-19 crisis, IPA will match ALL cash prizes that are awarded this year with an equal cash donation to the charity of the winning photographer’s choice in their community. Learn more here.
Each entry is $20 (USD). Photographers may submit an entry for consideration in multiple categories with a 20% discount per additional category. Please note that to take advantage of this offer, photographers must select multiple categories at the initial time of entry. Images submitted as separate entries (separate payment) are subject to the full fee.
The entries of the IPA Oneshot / Movement photography contest 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 International Photography Awards works together with magazines, online media, artist management agencies, production houses, photo societies and non-profit organizations which are also supporting the IPA Oneshot / Movement photography contest.
The IPA Oneshot / Movement photography contest 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.
