The moment is that split second occurrence that could happen in the blink of an eye and yet have a profound visual effect if captured properly. Such instances often have the magical ability to alter a person’s life and his or her surroundings forever.
Life is a collection of moments that shape our destiny. For photographers, a destiny defining moment is the junction where the time and place of a photograph meet to form a visual masterpiece.
Make your submission an unforgettable moment that can alter reality, or possibly even change history. Share your breath-taking moments of photography with us this season.
The Portfolio category returns to afford photographers the chance to showcase their storytelling skills through a series of photographs. A strong photographic story delves into the heart of a subject matter and leaves no margin for misinterpretation. A portfolio of photographs allows photographers to capture the hearts and minds of audiences in a way which may not be possible through a single photograph.
This category remains a favourite among photographers who have an outstanding eye for photography that doesn’t necessarily fall into any of the other categories on offer. Year after year, this category has gained quality and diversity, with a constant share of about a third of all entries registered in HIPA.
HIPA continues to offer participants two opportunities to participate in this category instead of one by once again dividing it the category into two sub-categories: one for black and white entries, to give deserved substance to this classic art form, and the other for coloured entries, giving participants the option to dazzle the jury and viewers with their vibrant compositions.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is limitless.
The visual industry is witnessing a rapid shift towards the strengthening of visual material through video, which can bring added meaning to a scene.
By launching this new and unique category, HIPA invites a new sector of talented artists to participate in the competition.
This category will accept submissions that fit the criteria of a ‘Time-lapse’ video while the subject matter of submissions is open. Submissions can be a combination of static, motion control, hyper-lapse, drone-lapse or simply a single video. Submissions should not include any form of visual (VFX) or CGI effects.
To ensure the authenticity of submissions, RAW samples from each sequence will be requested from entrants. Entrants must have and own all the necessary and appropriate intellectual property rights for all the footage, sound track(s) and/or music within the submission.
