The contest winners hailed from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey, India, Ukraine, Iran and the Philippines.
HIPA Secretary General, Ali bin Thalith, said, “We always keep an eye on the reactions of our photography community and listen to their feedback each time we announce the winners of our monthly #HIPAContest. It is very overwhelming to know about their experiences and the unique stories behind their photos. We also appreciate seeing the feedbacks coming from other experienced photographers, our previous contest winners and photography experts. Reviewing opinions and feedback from our community was very important for us to know the direct and indirect effects of this competition. In fact, our monthly Instagram competition became a sustainable and creative workshop for all photographers who would like to try and experiment in different photography genres, this contest became their monthly dedication especially for those who are persistent in following, participating and pursuing to win not only in our monthly #HIPAContest, but also in our annual photography competition.”
Bin Thalith added, “We purposely select the simplest ‘themes’ in the most creative manner to boost every photographer’s originality and imagination. We congratulate all the winners and advise the rest of our participants to continue their passion and dedication until they achieve their goals.”
