‘The idea that everything moves, changes, and evolves, is such a great concept to explore through photography. It’s been inspiring to see how photographers of all levels of expertise have captured this concept in its many forms—universal, abstract, human, and machine. Even though it seems the whole planet has almost come to a standstill, through these images we see that life goes on and moves forward,’ says Hossein Farmani, Founder and President of IPA.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, IPA has matched all cash prizes awarded to winning and finalist photographers in the form of a donation to the charity of their choice. All winning and honorable mention photos can be viewed here. IPA is now accepting submissions for its Annual Photography Competition.
