Advertising: Fashion, 2nd Place Winner John Wright

If you love photography contests like we do, then you'll want to check out The International Photography Awards. The annual competition was created to salute the achievements of the world's finest photographers, to discover new and emerging talent, and to promote the appreciation of photography.

Recently, the category winners were announced. Out of the thousands of entries IPA received this year, only the main category winners will move on as finalists to compete for IPA's top award of International Photographer of the Year. The winner will be announced at the annual Lucie Awards which is held at the Lincoln Center, New York on October 24th, 2011. That person will earn the coveted Lucie Statue and a cash prize of $10,000.

To view all the winners, you can go to this page on the IPA website or you can check out 25 of our very favorites, below. (We included 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. These are all professionally taken photos.) It's a diverse compilation of some excellent and inspiring work!
