Default IPA 2005 Photographer of the year competition

I have just found out about it and I found the results of the 2005 competition, you cane browse the winning images there..

check Nonprofessional Photographer of the Year: Editorial and Nonprofessional Photographer of the Year: People categories. Congratulations Sohrab.

aaaaaaah.. this is quite embarassing :)

although.. i do feel like i've sold my soul by entering it..

to be frank i was just trying a long shot to get to the prize money.. as one of the means to support the documentary work that i intend to do for a few years..

the overall winners are nominated for something called the lucie award.. something quite new...
last year it was conferred on salgado, nachtwey, gordon parks etc..
i think the year before that on bresson, avedon etc etc..
it's one of those itzy glitzy events..with hollywood stars comparing etc.. (although i don't quite rate it very high... in my opinion.. it might have the glamour but only after some time i might give it some weightage..it's a very new thing..)

anyway.. so it was just a long shot.. didn't quite there.. so i'm not really kicked about the children or the photostory bit :)

let's see maybe some other time :)

hey, Maciej

can you situate IPA in context against other competitions and photo outfits? The list of awards is very exhaustive, but only 16000 entries. Were they selected or sent by the photographer?

Cool, Sohrab, congrats, I find that very inspiring to have someone we know get rewarded for work that we have appreciated ourselves.
