DUBAI: The Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) has concluded judging for its seventh season of competition, ‘The Moment’.

The eight judges presided over submissions in the competition’s four main categories; ‘The Moment’, ‘General’, ‘Portfolio’ and ‘Time-lapse: Video’. Submissions for HIPA’s seventh season of competition had closed on Midnight of the 31st of October 2017.

Ali Bin Thalith, Secretary-General of HIPA, said, “Members of HIPA’s judging panel for the seventh season of competition were selected after careful consideration from the HIPA Board of Trustees. Factors considered included; the judges’ credentials as international photographers and judges, their standing in the industry and their familiarity with the categories of the seventh season.

“As a result, HIPA dedicated two specialist judges for the ‘Time-lapse’ category; Gunther Wegner and Peter Bill, who are veterans of this unique artform and no doubt have an eye for the best submissions. I wish to thank all our judges for the hard work they put into judging the submissions for our seventh season of competition, and we look forward to presenting all the winners at our annual awards ceremony next year.”

HIPA also hosted two photography workshops by members of the seventh season judging panel at its headquarters in Downtown Dubai. Palestinian photographer and HIPA judge Khalil Hamra presented a lecture titled ‘War Photography’, while American wildlife photographer and HIPA judge Ami Vitale gave a lecture titled, ‘Search for Truth’.
