IPA Photography Competition, Deadline: April 30, 2016


In 1939 Edward Steichen was given the assignment to curate a show for the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City. He asked 30 photographers including Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith, and Dorothea Lange, to document the common links of humanity worldwide. Steichen asked the photographers to photograph the commonalities of Birth, Childhood, Love, Marriage, and Death

The photographic documentation for this exhibition became the biggest-selling photography book in the history of photography.

This year IPA takes inspiration from the Family of Man, to document parallel circumstances in the world today, which produced those iconic works.

IPA will divide this project into similar categories, and we invite you to participate in this exciting and deeply meaningful event, so the generations to come will have access to these images from around the world.

- Birth
– Childhood
– Youth
– Love
– Marriage
– Old Age


Submitted images will be viewed and judged by our distinguished panel of Jurors, and selected winners will compete for:

– $3,000 in total cash prizes,
– being included in a traveling exhibition that will be shown around the world,
– and being published in a special-edition IPA Family of Man book.

The winners of each category will receive a prize package that includes a $500 cash prize, and inclusion of his or her piece in the exhibition, and inclusion in the book. The 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category will also be included in the exhibition and the book.


Each entry is $20 (USD). Photographers may submit an entry for consideration in multiple categories for only $15 per additional category. Please note that to take advantage of this offer, photographers must select multiple categories at the initial time of entry. Images submitted as separate entries are subject to the full fee.

Submit your entry now!

Note: This is a single-image competition. You can only submit one image per entry–image series cannot be entered. However, there is no limit to how many entries you can submit.
