Los Angeles, California, October 29, 2020, ZEXPRWIRE, The 2020 International Photography Awards has received more than 13,000 submissions from some of the most important photographers from around the world, and the judges have faced the incredibly challenging task of selecting the winners in each of the 13 categories.

Showcasing some of the most outstanding photographic work from around the globe, the world-renowned  International Photography Awards (IPA) has named the Category Winners and finalists in its 2020 Photography Competition for the Professional and Non-Professional/Student categories. 

The judges praised this year’s winners for their exceptional work across various genres and styles. Hossein Farmani, IPA’s founder and president, commented, “In these unprecedented times, this year’s entries reflect some of the biggest challenges facing our generation–not the least of which is dealing with a virus which, for the first time, is an event that has affected every person on earth in some way. We see photography at its best–whether covering the Covid pandemic, or the world’s uprising against injustice–the images captured are breathtaking. I can easily say these are the best images I have seen in the last decades.”

IPA’s distinguished international jury of renowned photography experts judged over 13,000 entries from  120 countries around the world to finally select these outstanding category winners.  In order to support and honour the outstanding work of both professional and amateur photographers around the world during the COVID-19 crisis, International Photo Awards will match the cash prizes that are awarded to the Category Winners this year with an equal cash donation to the charity of the winning photographer’s choice in their community.

“Miles from the main roads in rural Uganda, soccer balls bounce unevenly. Playing fields are arid, lush, weedy, sandy—any flattish space will do. Some feet are bare, others shod in fraying sneakers, boots, or rubber sandals. Yet children kick and chase handmade, lopsided balls with skill and abandon, competing for pride and joy—for the sheer pleasure of playing. The balls are spun into being with whatever’s at hand: rag or sock, tire or bark, plastic bag or banana leaves. Made entirely of recuperated materials, they give another life to something that would otherwise just be thrown away”, said photographer Brian Hodges.
