The International Photography Awards (IPA) conducts an annual competition for professional, non- professional, and student photographers on a global scale, creating one of the most ambitious and comprehensive competitions in the photography world today.
Annually, the IPA invites creatives and photography experts to view, judge and select the most innovative photographs in this prestigious competition. The winners of the main categories compete for IPA’s top award of International Photographer of the Year. Those finalists will be invited to attend the Lucie Awards at the Lincoln Center, New York, where one photographer will be announced as the grand winner, earning the coveted Lucie Statue and a cash prize of $10,000 provided by AtEdge.
At first I decided I was going to choose my seven favorite photographs out of the 1st through 3rd winners of each category. After about ten minutes of debating between a multitude of photographs, I deemed my task of narrowing the field to be insanely difficult. Shortly thereafter, one cup of orange juice later, I came to the inclusion that this will require multiple posts to give the IPA the coverage it deserves.
Here is part one of three. If I decide to delve into the runner-ups, I may have to extend this to a fourth post. Enjoy and check out the Non-Professional selections HERE.
