The Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) is hosting a photography competition at the 5th Dubai International Parachuting Championships. The mega event is termed as “Seize the Sky”, and will commence from 26th November until the 7th of December.
Photographers can enroll and aim to capture amazing photos of the parachuting competition. The venue offers free admission for everyone.
Participants can submit their entry photos to HIPA for a chance to win. The organisers will pick a total of five winners, and will give away cash prizes.
The photography contest by the creators of the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award, is back at the Dubai International Parachuting Championships for a third edition.
Seize the Sky will take place at Skydive Dubai in Jumeirah Beach Residences, and will continue until December 7. The competition is open to both professional and amateur photographers.
A prize fund of US$25,000 (Dh91,825), will be split among the five winners. The prize for first place is $7,000. Second place wins $6,000, while $5,000 will be awarded to third, $4,000 to the fourth and $3,000 to the fifth.
Ali bin Thalith, the secretary general of the award, says: “This is the third year in succession that we have returned to Skydive Dubai and the Dubai International Parachuting Championships to host this photography competition. It is almost like we’ve become a staple of the event and the venue. Seize the Sky comes on the back of our participation in the Pink Skies Breast Cancer awareness campaign, also hosted by Skydive Dubai last month, which was a great community initiative and an honour for us to be a part of.”
Interested people can submit their entries online on www.hipa.ae. It is mandatory for all photographs to be a minimum of 2MB in size, and they must be untagged and free of any form of signature, initial or logo. For more information call + 971 4 371 1111.
