Photographic art is no longer confined to those who splurge on big, fancy and expensive cameras and equipments. Now, the power of creation lies in everyone's hands, limited only by the imagination. Mobile phones and tablets are unprecedented tools to capture and create artwork anywhere anytime. The fleeting moment is just a click away.
The GoPix Awards celebrates creative use of mobile cameras and tablets for photographic art. We are seeking the world's best. The GoPix Awards will run as an annual competition that will be split up into two semiannual rounds. Each round is organised similar to a mini-competition resulting in Grand Nominees who will then vy for the prestigious title of TZIPAC International Mobile GoPixer of the Year.
TZIPAC is excited to launch The Eros Award 2012. This is an international juried competition that celebrates the magic of fine art nude photography, honouring the finest in classic and contemporary nude photography and artworks from around the world. Last year's competition saw over 300 participants coming from over 40 countries. We are excited to run this competition again with all new categories, as well as our wonderful guest judges Laura Panack and Gary Breckheimer. Apart from the grand prize of US$2000, our beautifully custom-made TZIPAC medals will be proudly awarded to all 1st Place category winners.
Black and white photography is as simple as it is complex, carefully weaving streaks of light into the black-unknown, giving rise to lines, shapes, textures, emotions and stories. TZIPAC is proud to celebrate this magic of black and white photography with The Zebra Award 2012 . With US$5000 worth of grand prizes and our custom-made TZIPAC medals up for grabs, we hope The Zebra Award 2012 will bring to light the marvellously diverse and vibrant visions of black and white photography from many amazing artists worldwide.
