IPF to host awards program in Sept in partnership with HMDA and CREDAI Hyderabad

Hyderabad, January 28, 2022: Hyderabad is chosen as the host city for the maiden “International Photographer of the Year Awards (IPOY 2022)”. The Awards will be presented in September in Hyderabad. More than 5000 photographers from 65 countries are expected to compete for the awards to be given out in 8 different categories. All the award-winning photographers will be flown to Hyderabad. This will help position Hyderabad, its brand, culture and identity. Hyderabad is already a global city. The contest allows us to showcase the city, its culture, uniqueness to the community of global photographers and others said Mr BM Santhosh, IAS, MDHyderabad Growth Corridor Limited(HGCL) and Secretary the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority(HMDA) while addressing a press conference in the city at HMDA Office at Khajaguda on Friday.

Speaking further the HMDA officer said, though HMDA is an urban planning agency of Hyderabad in Telangana is equally responsible not just to plan but also to showcase its infrastructure, promote the city, art and culture. That is the reason why HMDA is associated with the Awards program which is said to be a comprehensive set of awards in photography being held for the first time in South Asia. 

The Indian Photo Festival (IPF) has been exposed to more than 4 million audience and its website is visited from 140 countries. Seven editions are held so far.   This augurs well for us. Though Hyderabad is well known globally, we will still improve its stature. More people will discover Hyderabad. It helps us to promote the city, Mr BM Santhosh added.
