Thursday 12 September 2013
A new exhibition showcasing a stunning array of images from a Dubai-based photographic competition will be opening at the Royal Geographic Society in London.
Entries from this year's Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) will be put on display later this month in London.
The theme for this year's competition was 'Beauty of Light' and the overall winner was awarded £76,000 in prize money. This year's winning submission came from Osama Al Zubaidi with a striking image of two people walking through sand dunes.
There are several other categories including 'Black & White', 'General' and 'Emirates', the last of which celebrates the beauty of the UAE.
Winners in the 'Beauty of Light' and 'General' categories have been split into entries from international photographers and photographers from the UAE, in order to encourage people from the Emirates to take part.
The HIPA has been running for three years and is now accepting submissions for next year's competition on the theme is 'Creating the Future'.
The HIPA will be running from 24 - 27 September at the Royal Geographic Society
