KOTA BHARU- Hanya kerana sekeping gambar, namanya kini sebaris juru foto antarabangsa lain selepas dinobatkan sebagai pemenang ketiga Anugerah Fotografi Antarabangsa Hamdan (HIPA), Dubai baru-baru ini.

Muhamad Saleh Dollah, 40, tidak pernah menyangka percubaan pertamanya menghantar gambar untuk menyertai pertandingan itu tahun lalu berhasil apabila idea dan kreativiti yang diaplikasikan berjaya menyaingi peserta dari seluruh pelosok dunia.

“Mungkin ini rezeki saya, tidak ada persiapan dilakukan, hanya hantar gambar sedia ada yang diambil dua tahun lalu, dengan ambil kira tema ditetapkan, iaitu ‘mencipta masa depan’. Malah, proses penghantaran gambar dibuat melalui laman web anugerah itu juga dilakukan saat akhir, kira-kira enam jam sebelum penyertaan ditutup,” katanya kepada Sinar Harian, semalam.


Muhamad Saleh yang lebih dikenali sebagai Abe Less Classictouch Full berkata, beliau merupakan peserta pertama dari Malaysia yang menyertai anugerah itu sejak diperkenalkan pada 2011.

Mempertaruhkan gambar warga emas sedang mencari cucunya yang hilang di Pantai Mek Mas, PCB, dengan bertemankan pelita, Muhamad Saleh tidak menyangka ia mampu menarik perhatian juri sehingga melayakkan beliau menangi sebuah trofi dan wang tunai USD6,000 (RM20,000).

Pemilik kedai gambar Classictouch Studio ini berkata, bukan kamera yang menentukan kualiti atau menariknya sesuatu gambar sebaliknya objek di sebalik alat tersebut.

“Saya tidak gunakan kamera yang mahal kerana pada saya itu bukan syarat dalam mendapatkan foto terbaik,” katanya yang merancang menggunakan sebahagian wang hadiah untuk tujuan pengembaraan dalam mendapatkan gambar-gambar lebih
menarik.

Menurutnya, mendapat tunjuk ajar daripada abang ipar, Rosdi Ab Hamid yang juga pemilik kedai gambar terkemuka di negeri ini, Rosdi Foto, dan kakaknya, Hanisah Dollah banyak bantu mematangkan dirinya dalam dunia fotografi.

HIPA merupakan anugerah fotografi antarabangsa terkenal, yang dilancarkan pada tahun 2011 di bawah naungan Sheikh Hamdan Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Putera Mahkota Dubai, dan terbuka kepada jurugambar tempatan dan antarabangsa, bertujuan mencerminkan komitmen Dubai ke arah pembangunan seni dan budaya di UAE.

China’s Fuyang Zhou wins the grand prize of $120,000 at the annual HIPA competition in Dubai. The Chinese photographer is among 17 winners at the grand ceremony, which took place at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) on the evening of 17 March.

With prize money totaling $389,000, HIPA is the richest photography competition in the world.

HIPA also announces the winners across its four categories: General, Black and White, Street Life and the main category and theme, Creating the Future. Cash prizes were given to photographers from both within the UAE and outside.

Among the international winners are: Yanan Li from China, who takes first place in the Black and White category ($16,000); Ali Kh Al Zaidi from Kuwait, who wins first prize in the Creating the Future category ($20,000); and Vladimir Proshin, who takes first prize ($14,000) in the General category.

The Hamdan International Photography Awards (HIPA) was launched in 2011 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai.

The contest “was conceived to promote the art of photography by embracing all talents and creative minds in the field from around the world”, say the organisers.

This year, the competition received more than 26,000 entries from 156 countries, including India, Indonesia, Brazil, Malaysia and the Russian Federation, as well as countries in the United Arab Emirates.

HIPA secretary general said: “We are extremely proud and gratified to see this edition yet again raising the bar for challenges, notwithstanding the big success it achieved in the two earlier editions.”

Prior to the grand ceremony, HIPA announced two special awards: American photojournalist Steve McCurry was awarded the $20,000 Photography Appreciation Award for his long-standing commitment to photography; and Dr Ren Ng, founder of Lytro, a company currently developing light field technology, won the $25,000 Photographic Research and Report Award.
