2012 International Photography Awards

Eric Whipp was awarded in the International Photography Awards (IPA) Competition.

Eric Whipp was Awarded: Honorable Mention in Fine Art – Landscape category for the winning entry “Small Ray, Big Canyon.”


ABOUT Winner:
Born in Auckland New Zealand, Eric moved to Australia as a child where he quickly developed a fascination with the diverse landscape of the country. With a strong interest in photography, he went on to study a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in film and television, focusing on cinematography. In 2002, Eric moved to Toronto, which is now where he calls home. After almost 15 years experience as a film colourist, he is now turning his focus on his photography. Eric has the eye to encapsulate a fleeting moment of sunlight across a rocky canyon, or capture an embrace between a wild bear and her cubs – having the ability to bring to life a single moment within nature and humanize it.
The 2012 International Photography Awards received nearly 18,000 submissions from 104 countries across the globe. IPA is a sister-effort of the Lucie Foundation, where the top three winners are announced at the annual Lucie Awards gala ceremony. The Foundation’s mission is to honor master photographers, to discover new and emerging talent and to promote the appreciation of photography.
