The Kuala Lumpur International Photoaward (KLPA) is continue to seek fresh and innovative photography from new, emerging and established photographers from around the world. For 2018, they are focussing on the photo-story or project within the practice of portraiture.
Recognising the efforts of serious photographers all over the world who are creating stories and projects about important and deserving issues, KLPA2018 seeks to reward project-based portrait submissions by awarding a prize money of USD$5,000 to one photographer, along with an amazing trophy - a specially commissioned piece by Kong Wee Pang, an award winning designer and artist based in Memphis, USA.
All submissions are OPEN themed, with no restrictions or criteria to limit creativity, except that they must be portraits of people and their environment. As an advocate for strong and individualistic content in photography, the KLPA2018 would ask for portraits that are unmanipulated and have only minimal post-processing.
They like to see photographers push the boundaries of creativity in making visually exciting portraits telling individualistic, personal stories with strong narratives as their content, challenging normalcy.
