The Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) has announced the categories for its seventh season of competition 'The Moment'.

Once again, HIPA will offer photographers the chance to enter four main categories with ‘The Moment’ serving as the main theme. Plus, a new dedicated video category titled 'Time-lapse' also features this time.

HIPA has also announced that the $120,000 Grand Prize Award for the seventh season will be open to any one who enters the competition where as previously, it was just open to those who entered the competition's main theme. 

The Secretary General of HIPA, His Excellency Ali bin Thalith, said: "Through a directive from His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai and Patron of HIPA, we today announce the opening of submissions for the seventh season of competition which will be themed ‘The Moment’. His Highness stressed the importance of spreading the culture of photography and the arts to the rest of the world through HIPA, and we aim to continue to do that in the coming season. We would also like to take this opportunity to announce that the deadline for submissions for HIPA’s seventh season of competition will be the 31st of October 2017 at 11.59 P.M. (UAE Standard)."

Commenting on the launch of the new 'Time-lapse' category, Bin Thalith added: "Through the launch of the ‘Time-lapse’ category, we have set out a huge challenge to all creative visual artists, and not only photographers, to take part in our seventh season of competition. At HIPA, we always aspire to expand our reach within the arts community and feel that through this unique opportunity we will connect with a larger group of talented creative artists. Likewise, the move to open our Grand Prize Award to any submission in the seventh season of competition will no doubt increase competition amongst photographers taking part and push them to submit their best photographs in any category they enter."

As well as the 'General' and 'Portfolio' categories, two new special awards have been added to the accolade list. The 'Photography Content Creator Award' will be presented to a person or publication that has positively impacted the art of photography through promotion, publishing of content or invention of related photographic technology and the 'Emerging Person/Organisation in Photography Award' will be given to an emerging person or organisation that has shown outstanding work or vision in the photography industry on a regional, national or international level.
