    The Hamdan International Photography Award (HIPA), established in 2011, stands as a beacon of global photographic excellence. Under the esteemed patronage of the Crown Prince of Dubai, HIPA has rapidly ascended to become one of the most coveted photography awards worldwide. This prestigious competition not only celebrates the art of photography but also aims to foster creative talents across the globe, offering photographers a platform to showcase their work on an international stage.

    In its thirteenth season, HIPA has chosen "SUSTAINABILITY" as its central theme, reflecting a growing global emphasis on ecological and sustainable practices. This theme underscores the award’s commitment to addressing the pressing environmental challenges of our time through the powerful medium of photography. By doing so, HIPA aligns itself with global efforts to promote sustainability, encouraging photographers to capture images that inspire change and highlight the urgent need for a harmonious coexistence with our planet.

    Beyond the main theme of sustainability, HIPA introduces several categories to cater to diverse photographic interests. These include the General category, with subcategories in Colour and Black & White, offering photographers the liberty to explore creative expressions without thematic constraints. The Portfolio category challenges photographers to tell a cohesive story through a series of images, while the Sports Photography category seeks to capture the dynamic essence of athletic endeavors. Additionally, the competition has embraced the digital age with a category dedicated to Short Videos for social media, acknowledging the impact of moving images in contemporary storytelling. Through these varied categories, HIPA not only broadens its appeal to a wide array of photographers but also enhances its visibility and relevance in the ever-evolving landscape of digital photography and social media content creation.

    There is no entry fee.


    Open worldwide to anyone aged 18 or over.


    Winners of the HIPA 2024 International Photography Award will receive cash prizes, recognizing their efforts in capturing and raising awareness on critical global issues such as sustainability, the emotional and visual narratives of sports, compelling storytelling through a photographic series, and creative expression without boundaries in general photography categories. Additionally, the award celebrates exceptional contributions to the photography community, including a Photography Appreciation Award and a Photography Content Creator Award, acknowledging individuals who have significantly influenced the photography industry through various roles beyond capturing stunning images.
