We are proud to announce the Call for Entries to the 11th instalment of Kuala Lumpur International Photoawards 2019 for Portrait Photography.

Special emphasis will also be given to photographers who push the boundaries of conventionality, to producing imaginative, fresh visually arresting portraits and personally driven and well researched stories.

An OPEN category will also be available to photographers who may wish to submit portraits from any creative genres or styles, highlighting their individuality and personal visions.
