You are cordially invited to the opening of NTU International Photography Award 2017 Winners' Showcase

The NTU International Photography Awards (NTU IPA) 2017 is jointly organised by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National Geographic Live Singapore (NatGeo Live).

Taking the form of a biennial competition, it reaches out to imagemakers around the world and encourages amateur and professional photographers to contribute creative works in the forms of photography and moving images surrounding a central theme.

The theme of NTU IPA 2017 is Art, Science and the Image and we are looking for imaginative works where artistry and scientific interests collide. Science has long inspired art and artists, especially in the realm of photography. From the mechanical conceptions of the camera obscura to the chemistry-heavy analogue photography processes, photographers of the past have shown how they harnessed the scientific zeitgeist of their times to advance their art. Fast forward to the 21st century and we see how science and technology have integrated seamlessly into our everyday lives. The ways in which art can engage with science are broadening and we are looking for fresh ideas and explorations that exhibit this crossover.

The NTU International Awards aims to establish itself amongst the best and the noted awards for photography, making it an annual event for the global community to look forward to in the future.​ ​
