This year IPA takes inspiration from the Family of Man, to document parallel circumstances in the world today, which produced those iconic works.
In 1939 Edward Steichen was given the assignment to curate a show for the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City. He asked 30 photographers including Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith, and Dorothea Lange, to document the common links of humanity worldwide. Steichen asked the photographers to photograph the commonalities of Birth, Childhood, Love, marriage, and Death. The photographic documentation for this exhibition became the biggest-selling photography book in the history of photography.
IPA will divide this project into similar categories, and we invite you to participate in this exciting and deeply meaningful event, so the generations to come will have access to these images from around the world. Submitted images will be viewed and judged by our distinguished panel of Jurors, and selected winners will be included in a traveling exhibition that will be shown around the world, and published in a special-edition book.
– $20 per single-image entry
– $15 per additional category for the same entry
