The 2013 International Photography Awards received nearly 18,000 submissions from 104 countries across the globe. IPA is a sister-effort of the Lucie Foundation, where the top three winners are announced at the annual Lucie Awards gala ceremony. The Foundation’s mission is to honor master photographers, to discover new and emerging talent and to promote the appreciation of photography. Since 2003, IPA has had the privilege and opportunity to acknowledge and recognize contemporary photographer’s accomplishments in this specialized and highly visible competition.
Proud to be featured on Life Framer in their theme, Emotions Of Life. I was chosen as “runner up” by judge Chloe Aftel who noted, “This picture was just so unexpected, her face in the midst of the image, I couldn’t tell if it was meant to be bizarre or not, just I liked the feeling it gave.”
Chloe Aftel is an editorial and portrait photographer with a keen sense for style and fashion. Her poetic, lifestyle minded and narrative images are full of life and have a sense of freedom. She has won a bunch of award including American Photo, PDN 30, International Photography Awards.
The photo will be exhibited at a modern gallery in London at the end of 2013.
