Judging panel comprises of seven internationally renowned photographers 

The Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) has announced the official start of judging in the sixth season of competition ‘The Challenge’.  The judging committee, which consists of seven members, includes some of the biggest and most recognisable names in international photography today.

Commenting on the start of the judging stage, the Secretary General of HIPA, His Excellency Ali bin Thalith said, “HIPA is delighted to announce the commencement of judging for our sixth season of competition, ‘The Challenge’. Likewise, we thank all photographers who took the time to appreciate our sixth season of competition and enter their wonderful photography. With a large number of submissions this season, the amount of photography we have had to process has been rather unprecedented. This is largely due to the introduction of the ‘Portfolio’ category this season, which meant that a series of five to ten photographs were submitted for every submission in the category. This will no doubt make the judging even more interesting, not to mention ‘challenging’ for our judges.” Bin Thalith added, “HIPA continues to show its commitment to rewarding the best photographers who take part in our competition by once again selecting an internationally renowned panel of photography experts to oversee the judging process. This is a continuation of our dedication from previous years in ensuring that the judging of submissions is world-class. We are confident that our judging panel this year will continue on from the work done by their predecessors in judging these great submissions and rewarding those most deserving.”

Working in studio or on location he mixes traditional ‘on camera’ techniques with digital manipulation to achieve realistic images and bring his scale models to life. Felix puts special attention to the concept creation as well as the technical side. For him, photography is not to portrait what there exists but to portrait what exists in him.

Adrian Sommeling

Adrian Sommeling – Holland

Adrian is a conceptual portrait artist who really knows how to tell a story with his images. Now involved in advertising and commercial work, you probably recognise Adrian’s portfolio for the masterfully taken photographs of his son. Not only is he an incredibly gifted photographer and artist, he is a father, and he integrates these two aspects when capturing his son and his friends taking part in one of the many artistic ideas or scenes that Adrian has come up with in his head.

Adrian has found a very creative style of visual storytelling inspired by the style of American advertising photographer Dave Hill.  Adrian describes his whole style as the “American style”. With a post-processing style that feels so cinematic, you can’t help but stare at his portfolio of images in awe.

Adrian approaches his pieces like photorealistic paintings, sketching out each one before taking to his camera.  As a result, he creates striking, unusual and powerful images that are sure to make you double-take.  Heavily inspired by his young son and youthfulness in general, Sommeling creates pieces that capture the beauty and wonder of childlike imagination.
