Los Angeles, (Oct. 7,  2014) The Lucie Awards presents the International Photography Awards (IPA) competition, a sister effort of the Lucie Foundation, and has announced the 2014 finalists. An international jury of photography professionals http://www.photoawards.com/en/Pages/About/Jury2014.php selected these outstanding finalists from over 27,000 submissions from 104 countries. Of these 30 finalists, one winner will be named for each of four categories: International Photographer of the YearDiscovery of the YearDeeper Perspective Photographer of the Year and Moving Image Photographer of the Year at the Lucie Awards on Sunday, Nov. 2.  The Lucie Awards culminate a weekend of events including the IPA’s Best of Show exhibition/party and the Lucie Lectures. This year we welcome David Clarke, Head of Photography, Tate, as Guest Curator of the Best of Show Exhibition.
Susan Baraz, Head of Judges for the IPA commented, “The 80 plus jurors for the IPA competition are the most profoundly influential people in photography, coming from all parts of the globe. It is most gratifying that the amazing images submitted were as well: China, Iran, Ukraine, and Syria, to mention a few. One realizes how a single photograph can bind together all our lives. It’s humbling.”   Roy Flukinger, Senior Research Curator, Harry Ransom Center added, “Jurying the IPA Awards is always a challenge because there is much serious and invigorating work.  The proficiency and skill of so many reviewees is always high and each year I have found new bodies of work, which reveal an artistic and photojournalistic vision that merits our commendation as well as the world’s attention.  Happily this has proven to be so again this year.  So may it continue."   2014 Competition introduces a new “Event” Category.
