International Photography Awards™ (IPA)

The International Photography Awards™ conducts an annual competition for professional, non-professional, and student photographers on a global scale, creating one of the most ambitious and comprehensive competitions in the photography world today. 

Founded in 2001, IPA’s mission is to salute the achievements of the world’s finest photographers, to discover new and emerging talent, and to promote the appreciation of photography. The annual programming of the Lucie Foundation has been funded largely through the International Photography Awards, including the signature event, the Lucie Awards.
