ABOUT THE IPA ONESHOT PHOTO CONTEST / OUR TIMES – PANDEMIC PERSPECTIVES
There is no doubt that the past year has been an unprecedented time in our history, overshadowed by a global pandemic that has affected every aspect of life across the globe. This edition of IPA’s One-Shot competition will focus on images that document the impact of COVID-19 and how the world has responded.
We want you to share your perspectives through vivid images, of how you have experienced and witnessed these events: the front-line heroes who have been battling to save lives or keep the wheels of our society turning; the effects and isolation of long-term lockdown; the ways in which our communities and technology has evolved in order to adapt to this “new normal”.
Submit your images in the following categories:
– Heroes of the Pandemic
– Lockdown Life
– New Normal
Deadline: July 4, 2021
Submitted images will be viewed and judged by our distinguished panel of Jurors and entries will compete for $5,000 in total cash prizes. The Grand Winner will be selected from the category winners. Photographers of all levels of expertise are welcome to enter.
Category winner: $500
Grand winner: $2,500
Total cash prizes: $5,000
A special curated selection of the images submitted to this competition will be featured in a special edition e-book that will be available online.
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.
