The winners of the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) for June were announced on Tuesday, July 4.

The competition focuses on a different theme each month with June’s focus being on the Holy Month of Ramadan.

The Secretary General of HIPA His Excellency Ali bin Thalith said: “The Holy month of Ramadan is a special time of year for people from all faiths and backgrounds. Not only do Muslims take part in fasting between sunrise and sunset but they also partake in extra acts of spiritual worship which many photographers documented through the lenses of their cameras. This colourful time of year was masterfully captured by the entrants in this month’s Instagram Photo Contest, which contained some brilliant photography. We congratulate all our winners and encourage photographers to take part in future editions of the contest in the coming months.”

One winner, Sameera Ahmed, whose photograph was taken at the Quran teaching school in India, said she was, “Drawn to the spiritual attachment the children of the school had with the Holy Book they were learning.”

Another winner, Yemeni photographer Mansour Mohsen, took his winning photograph whilst performing the Umrah pilgrimage in the Holy City of Makkah, where worshippers reached up to touch the Ka’ba, Islam’s holiest site.
