Themes for Dubai photo contest announced

I am happy to announce the launch of the new season of the popular ‘Instagram Photo Contest.’

The Contest coincides with the launch of the seventh season of competition, ‘The Moment.’

It is open to all photographers on the Instagram social media platform, which will once again utilise the official HIPA hashtag.

The Contest has seen thousands of submissions since its launch in 2015 and has attracted photographers from all around the world.

Simple and attractive

The launch of the new season of the ‘Instagram Photo Contest’ became imperative for HIPA due to the popularity of the competition and the large number of submissions over the past two years.

It offers photographers a medium to submit their photographs and compare their works with other international photographers on the popular social media platform, Instagram.

The simplicity of the photo contest has made it very attractive for budding photographers who see it as a window of opportunity for their photographs to be recognised internationally.

This was definitely the case with some of our winners last season who took their photography to the next level after winning in the ‘Instagram Photo Contest.’

Challenging themes

The themes for the new season of the ‘Instagram Photo Contest’ will challenge photographers to be more creative with their submissions.

We have utmost trust that our photography community will be up for the challenge and will submit some breathtaking submissions in this season’s contest.

The themes for the new season of the contest have been chosen until April of 2018 to give photographers time to prepare for each month’s topic and hopefully afford them a better chance at winning.
