The Malta International Photo Award (MIPA) is a photography award that aims at providing aspiring photographers from all around the globe with the chance to share their passion and world. We strive to connect the world through photography, and showcase the nature and cultures of different regions of the world to a global audience.
MIPA wants to provide international photographers with a deep insight into different approaches towards photography, and we hope to encourage people to push their personal and professional boundaries.
Five categories: City, Nature, People, Abstract and Storytelling.
An International jury made up of international curators, photo editors and photographers will assign cash prizes and the winners will be exhibited at the prestigious Malta Postal Museum in Valletta.
The grand prize will be awarded for the top 3 photos or collections (for storytelling) from each category - a total amount of €45,000.
This will be split into each of the five categories:
The winning picture receives €5,000
The runner-up receives €3,000
The third placed picture receives €1,000
The second Prize will be awarded to the top 15 photos or collections (for storytelling) from each category.
The selected pictures and collections will be exhibited at the prestigious Malta Postal Museum in Valletta, Malta, during a public exhibition in February 2019.
The third prize will be awarded to the top 25 photos or collections (for storytelling) from each category.
The selected pictures and collections will be featured in a high quality publication by the Malta International Photo Award.
In addition, all pictures selected for the above prizes will be listed on our website under the ‘Winners Gallery’, as well as international recognition for each photographer through our marketing process.
