The annual Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Awards (HIPA) has become one of the world’s most prestigious photography competitions, celebrating the work of photographers around the world, and bringing international attention to the art and craft of photography.

If you’ve ever thought of entering your work in a competition, this is the one you’ve been waiting for. The recognition (and prize money) alone could seriously change your life, and the competition is already underway (the deadline for submissions is October 31, 2016, so enter soon).

I talked about The HIPA Awards here on the blog (here’s the link), after traveling to Dubai last year to attend the HIPA Awards Presentation and I have to say, I was absolutely blown away at the scale and scope of the awards (akin to the Academy Awards here in the US), and now in their Sixth Season, I can’t imagine how amazing this event will be.

Here’s the link for info on this year’s theme – how to enter – and all the details.

HIPA is a first class organization and they are bringing a level of recognition and attention to our craft that is rarely seen anywhere in the world today, and I applaud their vision and heart for photography.

If you’re thinking, “I wonder if I should enter?” the answer is absolutely, positively, yes! I just cannot say enough for this organization, the people behind it, and the entire competition and what they’re trying to achieve. It’s really something special, and I truly hope you enter some of your best work today.

Good luck! :)

Let’s Go Shooting Portraits in New York City!
I’m doing a special “Shooting Portraits on Location” session at Photo Plus Expo this October (they call it a “Photo Walk,” but it’s different than my photo walks [btw: official date to be announced shortly], in that this is actually a training class and not just a social event).

We’re photographing models with New York City as our backdrop (I teach the techniques, then you do the shooting), and the whole thing is sponsored by Lexar (I’m one of their “Lexar Elite Photographers” – have been for years, but this is my first time presenting for them, and I’m psyched). Very limited number of spaces available, so sign up soon. Details here.

Lightroomapalooza Next Wednesday!
Well, it really should be called “Travel Photography with Lightroomapalooza!” because that’s what we’re doing next Wednesday in a live, free public Webcast with Adobe’s own Terry White.

We’ll be showing all sorts of cool Lightroom techniques for you travel photographers out there, and we’ll be taking your Lightroom questions live as well. Everybody’s invited.

Wed. the 17th at 2:00 pm – http://kelbyone.com/webcast – see you then.

Well, that’s enough for now (I’m getting tired just looking at all this).  Check back tomorrow – I’ve got some important info for ya!

Don’t worry — if you’re not a KelbyOne member, you can take the 10-day Free Trial and join us tomorrow live for this groundbreaking Webcast. Kristi is awesome (KelbyOne members LOVE her current class on high-end skin retouching), and she’s here taping some new online classes. Tomorrow, I’m excited to be joining her as we talk about the “Unspoken Rules of Retouching” and I think you’ll find this really helpful.

This isn’t one big tutorial — this is a discussion where we talk about the stuff we don’t get to talk about during a tutorial. Of course, we’re taking your questions live, and looking at some real world retouching scenarios and we can’t wait to share all of this with you tomorrow. Here’s the details:

Who: Kristina Sherk and yours truly
What: Live Webcast on the “Unspoken Rules of Retouching” and the state of the retouching industry
Where: http://kelbyone.com/webcast
When: 1:00 pm EDT
Why: We love giving our members a creative advantage

Hope you can join us tomorrow (if you can’t be there for the Live Webcast, we’ll rebroadcast it in its entirety exclusively for KelbyOne members).

Look forward to seeing you then!

Best,

-Scott
