Jury

Our jury will comprise of professional photographers, photo journalists, and photo editors from around the world. Once the jury panel is announced we will share more information about the members on this page.

The jury panel will review, score, and select photos in two phases. No information about the photographer’s identity is provided to the jury at any time during the judging process.

Phase 1:  independent review and scoring

The jury members review and score a long list of images that meet the competition criteria as stated in the rules and conditions and passed our internal pre-screening (and the ethics panel where applicable). In this phase, each jury member reviews submissions independently.

Phase 2: panel review and winner selection

All jury members meet virtually to review and discuss the highest-scoring submissions. During this phase, the panel decides on the two grand prize winners, the category winners, and the exhibition shortlist.

WE ARE OPEN FOR ENTRIES FROM AMATEUR AND PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS OF ALL AGES FROM AROUND THE WORLD.​​
