To commemorate the 10-year anniversary competition, IPA announces a new category “Moving Images” that will carry a $2500 prize.
The International Photography Awards, an annual juried photography competition, now celebrating its 10th year, reveals a new category to its competition: Moving Images. Professional, emerging, and student photographers will be eligible to submit their cohesive moving image pieces (short films, music videos, slideshows, etc.) for consideration. The winner, selected from the top-scoring professional and emerging entrants, will receive a $2500 cash prize.
A special extended deadline has been announced, due to a positive response to the new category. The final deadline will be July 16, 2012 (11:59pm PDT). Winners of the International Photography Awards will receive recognition at the Tenth Annual Lucie Awards, in Los Angeles, as well as a Lucie statue, and cash prizes. IPA will give $22,500 in cash prizes to winners of its annual competition. Winning work will also be displayed in the annual Best of Show exhibition, which will debut during Lucie Week, and then travel internationally.
For nearly ten years, the competition has garnered international acclaim for both professional and emerging photographers, and award-winners have included Alex Prager, Nadav Kander, Ian & Erick Regnard, Paolo Pellegrin, and more. The addition of the Moving Images category is a response to the increasingly multi-media space that photography occupies, and IPA hopes to expand its reach to include visionaries whose work occupies the still image, and also beyond.
