The Photography Appreciation Award
There are many passionate people within the photography industry who are dedicated and relentless in their pursuit for excellence. These people offer their services and expertise without expecting a return on their efforts and therefore form a vital part of the photographic community.
The ‘Photography Appreciation Award’ is a special category for a person or group who has shown long-standing commitment to enhancing the art of photography. By awarding the recipient, HIPA hopes to give back a small amount of the respect and appreciation they deserve.
The Photography Content Creator Award
Service to photography is not limited to taking stunning photographs, but extends to editors, publishers, bloggers, researchers, inventors, promoters and all print and digital content creators that have had a positive impact on the industry and helped shape it to what it is today.
Emerging Person/Organization in Photography Award
This award is presented to an emerging person or organisation that has shown outstanding work or vision in the photography industry on a regional, national or international level.
All winners of the Special Awards are to be exclusively selected by HIPA.
