Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) recently announced the results of their first international photo contest, One World. With over 4500 images received, the jury was looking for quality images that “celebrate the beauty and diversity of our world, a world where cultures and civilizations meet, communicate and interact with one another.”
In a surprising turn of events, TIPA jurors found that the images submitted in the professional category did not adequately relate to the theme of the contest. The amateur category, however, received many entries that perfectly explored the ideas of the theme. The jury awarded the prizes in the amateur category, but decided to not award any in the professional category. Instead that prize money will be donated to the Chris Hondros Fund, which is dedicated to advancing photojournalism. You can see the winning amateur category images here.
