At India Photography Awards, we conduct monthly and annual competitions for Indian professional, non-professional, and student photographers on a global scale. Inspired by an explosion of interest in photography in India and the talent that is slowly becoming visible, we have launched this global platform dedicated to showcase contemporary and imaginative images with intent of promoting photography in the country.
The competition is open to Indian Nationals only. The image could have been taken anywhere in the world.
The contest has two categories; there will be three winners announced in the monthly contest and five winners announced in the annual contest across each category.
Nature - the sub-categories include wildlife, landscape and macro. In nature photography, we are seeking images taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements. From intimate animal portraits to sublime landscapes, innovative techniques to capturing 'soul satisfying' moments... go on give wings to your imagination and show us nature as you see it.
Travel - the sub-categories include people (not portraits), culture, customs, buildings and monuments. In this category we are seeking images involving the documentation of people, culture, customs and history of a location. We want to see a place as you see it.
