Water may be the oldest and the perfect companion of humankind. Not only is our bodies predominantly made of water, but water is a necessity within our daily lives. From nature to nurture to science and discovery; water is central to our universe.
Photography not only photographs the present, but in time creates a rich archive of the past and even inspires the imagination for the future. Water as a theme provides an endless and provocative subject that captures the photographer’s imagination and inspires an opportunity for photographic brilliance and storytelling.
The Portfolio category returns to afford photographers the chance to showcase their storytelling skills through a series of photographs. A strong photographic story delves into the heart of a subject matter and leaves no margin for misinterpretation. A portfolio of photographs allows photographers to capture the hearts and minds of audiences in a way which may not be possible through a single photograph.
What is most beautiful is to give the opportunity to compete and win for all people. Mobile photography has become a natural companion in our lives and has evolved over the years to provide a formidable tool that has captured our imagination.
This category keeps pace with the global trend and the millions of images that mobile phones take daily for sharing, recording, discovery and dozens of other purposes.
This category remains a favourite among photographers who have an outstanding eye for photography which may not necessarily fall into any of the other categories on offer.
HIPA continues to offer participants two opportunities to participate in this category, instead of one. With one category open to black and white entries, a classic art form, and the other for coloured entries, giving participants the option to dazzle the jury with their vibrant compositions.
