KL INTERNATIONAL PHOTOAWARDS

2011 AWARDS & OPENING NIGHT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia April 4, 2011 – Photography has always played an important role in social change and helping humanity to create a better and more just world. Sometimes, all it takes is one photo.

KL International Photoawards began in 2009, and is an annual worldwide competition in search of the best in contemporary portrait photography, attracting as many as 1,700 entries from over 40 countries. Showcasing some of the leading and emerging photographers, the 2011 Awards have just been judged by a team of 5 international and local judges from related disciplines.

The Winners for the Portrait Individual Category, Portrait Story Category, ASI Most Promising Photographer Under 25 and the People’s Choice prize will be announced at the KL International Photoawards 2011 Awards & Opening Night on 19 April, Tuesday, 2011 at 8:00 PM at White box, MAP, Solaris Dutamas 1, Jalan Dutamas 1, 50480 Kuala Lumpur.

The free exhibition will run from 19 April, Tuesday – 4 May, Wednesday. White Box opening hours are from 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM.

This year KL International Photoawards has partnered Anti-Slavery International, the UK’s oldest human rights organisation in hope to inspire photographers, whether they are established or aspiring, to take that photo, and in turn for their vision to move the rest of the world.

The 3rd KL International Photoawards Exhibition hopes to show the ‘human’ in ‘human rights’ through a selection of the best entries for this year. This years’ selection will be featuring 45 finalists from the Individual Portrait Category and 10 Finalists from the Portrait Story Category, which also includes the Most Promising Photographer Under 25.
