“The Kuala Lumpur International Photoawards is at the forefront of contemporary portrait photography. Reaching a global audience and centred in SE Asia, we continue to attract exciting and thoughtful photography in the genre, since 2009. KLPA2015 invites submissions from all photographers to our 7th international portrait photography competition.
As in previous years, we continue to seek fresh and innovative photography from new, emerging and established photographers from around the world. Two categories are offered in KLPA2015. We continue with the OPEN category for single ‘stand-alone’ contemporary portrait photography. An important category, allowing photographers to define their own visual styles and subtle cues, in a genre which continues to grow in popularity.
This year, we dedicate the theme of the awards to the concept of Beauty. Photography today, like no other medium, has been the purveyor in all manners concerning Beauty : fashion, fine art, lifestyle, advertising and so on, but artists always revert to classical paintings and the Masters to define this concept in visual arts.”
