Kuala Lumpur International Photoawards is an annual international portrait photography competition, founded in 2009. It is noted as one of the Top50 photography competitions in the world, and is recommended a top photo contest to enter in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 219 by Photoshelter, Format.com and World Photography Organisation.

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

Following on from a memorable 10th instalment, this year are focussing our attention on the many talented photographers around the world who are photojournalists or involved in photo-documentary projects, making and telling visual stories with their committed skills.

The 2019 theme 'UNYIELDING GAZE - Portraits in Photojournalism' in the THEME Category will seek single-image portraits taken by journalists and documentary photographers in their pursuit of factual news events and socially engaged photo-projects. 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.
