The International Photography Awards™ conducts an annual competition for professional, amateur, and student photographers on a global scale, creating one of the most ambitious and comprehensive competitions in the photography world today.
The category winners in both professional and amateur levels, listed below, will compete for IPA’s top two awards, which will be announced at the annual Lucie Awards Gala. The main professional prize is International Photographer of the Year, selected from the 13 professional category winners and earning the coveted Lucie Trophy and a cash prize of $10,000. The 13 category winners in the non-professional/student categories will compete for the title of Discovery of the Year. The winner will also be awarded the Lucie Trophy and $5,000 cash prize.
IPA is a sister-effort of the Lucie Foundation, 501(c) 3 non-profit, charitable foundation whose mission is to honor master photographers, discover and cultivate emerging talent and promote the appreciation of photography worldwide. The annual programming of Lucie Foundation is funded largely though the International Photography Awards, including the signature event, the Lucie Awards.
The 13 Category winners in the Professional Categories will each receive a $1,000 cash prize, and the 13 Category winners in the Non-Professional Categories will each receive a $500 prize. Each of the above winners will also receive two tickets to attend the Lucie Awards Gala in New York city, where they will be finalists for the following titles:
THE INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR (PROFESSIONAL CATEGORIES)
DISCOVERY OF THE YEAR (NON-PROFESSIONAL CATEGORIES)
The IPA competition is open to any living photographer, 18 years of age or older, from any country. Professional photographers will be judged against other professionals and non-professionals against other non-professionals and students.
