PAST AWARD
CATEGORIES


Since starting in 2018, the Malta International Photo Award aimed to have its participants cover a wide range of themes and subjects when sending their submissions. 

Abstract

Abstract is our experimental category. There is no concept in this theme and photographers are invited to be non-objective and to come up with visual photographs that can evoke a deep-thought process in the viewer. All kinds of digital manipulation are allowed in this category.

Storytelling

Storytelling is a category that invites the photographer to submit a series of 5 images. While it is true that every photograph has its own story sometimes one image does not do the story justice. As such we would like photographers to tell a story through a collection of images that work harmoniously together.
