Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

KL International Photoawards 2012

klpalogo KL INTERNATIONAL PHOTOAWARDS proudly announces the 2012 Call For Entries as of 1st December 2012. In its 4th year, for 2012 the organisers have added two Open categories to the original Portrait Category, which defined its inception in 2009.

The KLPA 2012 is a entry-fee based photography competition open to all levels of photographers from around the world, where all entrants have the opportunity to compete on a level playing field, and judged by experienced professionals in related industries within photography, gallery, media and the arts.

Annually, since 2010, KLPA received over 1,000 entries from over 35 nations, from professionals, keen amateurs as well as newcomers to photography.

Today, we are constantly being flooded with imagery, which are easily and increasingly manipulated by digital filters and apps. Excessive digital manipulation has become the norm. We have therefore chosen Pure Photography as the overall focus for KLPA 2012. Emphasis will be given to outstanding photographs that have minimal digital manipulation – rewarding content, composition and framing techniques. KLPA12 also encourages ‘back to basics’ photo-essays in documentary storytelling, where strong editing, relevant titling, narrative and an impactful story will be rewarded.
