Global photo contest organiser in Brazil

The Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) was a part of the ‘PhotoImage Brasil,’ held in Sao Paulo from August 28 to 30, 2013.

HIPA is the richest Photography Award in the world and ‘PhotoImage Brasil’ is the largest Photography exhibition in South America.

HIPA Assistant Secretary General Sahar Al Zarei said that the three-day exposition featured thousands of international visitors and that the HIPA stand hosted more than 15,000 people.

“HIPA’s participation at PhotoImage Brasil can easily be considered one of the top overseas participations by the award in its short history. There were participants from over 60 nations and it was with great pride that HIPA was the sole representative of the Arab world and the Middle East,” she said.

Public Lectures

Ms Al Zarei said that public photography lectures by world renowned photographer Martin Grahame-Dunne held three times a day at the HIPA stand attracted large crowds and that the support from the United Arab Emirates embassy staff in Brazil in translating the lectures were useful.

“We hope to carry forward the success attained at PhotoImage Brasil to our next international stops which will include India, Malaysia, France and UK,” she said.

Currently in its third season of Competition under the theme, ‘Creating the Future,’ HIPA is set to become the richest photography Award in the world for the second consecutive year.

Established in 2011 under the patronage of Dubai Crown Prince Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Award will carry a grand prize of US$ 120,000 and an overall prize pool of US$ 389,000.
