Different from the previous HPAs, HPA 2015 has made two changes in Jury’s Special Awards:

1) Winners of Jury’s Special Awards will be selected from the 100 nomination award-winning works rather than the 60 documentary award-winning works.

The Final Nomination Award winners will be made clear by deducting the several Jury’s Special Award winners. Nomination Award-winning photographers will enjoy free accommodation during the award ceremony but have to pay for the round-trip tickets to China.
