IPA Int'l Photography Awards | 2023 Honorable Mention

The story behind the winning photo:

Selecting the mooncake packaging photograph to submit to the IPA was a deeply personal choice. We wanted to convey the cultural significance and artistry behind mooncakes which are traditionally enjoyed during the Mid-Autumn Festival in many Asian countries including our beloved country — Malaysia. The packaging not only protects the delicate mooncakes but also serves as a canvas for creativity.

The mooncake packaging we photographed was by Teatime by Thien, adorned with intricate patterns, delicate embossing and deep colours. Each design told a story of tradition, history and craftsmanship, making it a worthy subject for our lens.

In the world of photography, there are no limits to what can be considered art. Our journey to receiving an IPA International Photography Award has taught us that every subject, no matter how ordinary or unusual, has the potential to inspire and captivate. So, fellow photographers, let this story be a reminder that your unique vision and the beauty you see every day can lead to extraordinary recognition and success in the world of photography. Embrace simplicity, celebrate culture and keep capturing the world one frame at a time. This small but significant achievement has given us the confidence to pursue our passion for photography even further. It serves as a reminder that there is no limit to the subjects we can capture and the stories we can tell through our lens.
