IPAA International Photographic Art Awards

IPAA International Photographic Art Awards was created with a dual purpose in mind: the first is to show what is seen and what is not seen of the world around us, and the second to give financial support and visibility to those who with their talent, effort and dedication show us both realities mentioned above.

We are photographers, and we believe in photography as an enormous tool for art, expression, communication and denunciation. We encourage all lovers of photography to create and share their photographic world, to develop their talent without limits.

IPAA deadline is arriving soon








Photography helps people to see.
