Dear contestants,

There is no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year for all. Due to Covid-19, 2020 has been a year marked by a crisis of an unprecedented nature that took us to experience lockdowns and restrictions such as the mandatory use of facemasks, mobility restrictions and home confinements. These same restrictions that will help us to put a stop to the pandemic, prevented us to enjoy our social life and company life as we used to, being both fundamental elements of our photography contest categories.

In view of this international ongoing situation, we have decided to cancel this year´s edition of the 2020 Ikei Photo Contest. We look forward to hearing from you and to continue enjoying the fabulous work of our talented contestants. We hope 2021 will be the year of recovery, healing, unity and harmony.

We take this opportunity to show our support and solidarity with all the affected by this pandemic and to recognize the hard work and dedication shown by all the professionals that everyday work hard to minimize the effects in our lives.

We´ll see you in the 2021 Ikei Photo Contest.

IKEI PHOTO CONTEST is an international competition of social and company photography characterised by a clear testimonial approach adopted in the context of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of IKEI research & consultancy, SA, an international company with an experience of more than 2,500 projects developed in collaboration with more than 600 clients.

In 2018 the Contest has gone through its 2nd Edition, with 900 participants and more than 2600 photographs submitted.

We would like to thank once again the support of many different partners, especially the organizers of the International Mountain, Nature and Adventure Maria Luisa Photography Contest.
