Event History

KLPA started in 2009 and we are now in our 10th consecutive Call.

What Makes this event different?

KLPA continues to attract professional and amateur photographers who specialise in Portraiture.

Copyright Policy

The photographer retains the copyright at all times.

Image Usage Rights

Submitted images will only be used for purposes of promotion and features in relation to KLPA by the press or supporting media.

The 10th edition of the KUALA LUMPUR INTERNATIONAL PHOTOAWARDS  is now open for entries for the 2018 installment. 

We would like to acknowledge the support we have received from our followers over the years, and we will be awarding a special GRAND PRIZE of $5,000 to one ultimate photographer. This is our highest prize money to be awarded and is in addition to our unique commissioned trophies, extended exposure and printed features by our media partners.

With the intention of recognizing diversity and rewarding effort this edition of KLPA will specifically highlight the importance of good storytelling in photography. This will be reflected within the contemporary portraiture genre where so many emerging photographers are focussing their lens - project work or the photo story.

This year we will emphasize the importance of the photo project and special recognition will be awarded to photographers who push the boundaries of conventionality to produce fresh, imaginative, visually arresting portraits and personally driven and well researched stories.

KLPA2018 is a completely OPEN contest. There is no theme to restrict your creativity, and there are no boundaries to hold you back.

Deadline April 30th, 2018.
