2020 Finalists

Welcome to the 2020 finalists’ page. Here you will find the names of all the photographers who have been shortlisted in the 2020 awards.

All finalists have been emailed to request their high-resolution files and RAW files. Owing to the COVID situation, for 2020 only we are not using prints for the final judging rounds. If your name is on this list and you haven’t yet received an email from us, please check your junk/spam filter and if the email is not in there, please contact us!

We would like to thank everybody who entered the awards the year and to congratulate all our finalists and thank them for submitting such wonderful images, which gave the judges a very hard task when it came to deciding who should be shortlisted!  Over 25,000 images were submitted from photographers in more than 140 countries, so to be shortlisted is a significant achievement in itself.

IF YOU ARE VIEWING THIS LIST ON A MOBILE PHONE, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE TWO COLUMNS TO THIS TABLE, SO YOU MAY NEED TO TURN THE PHONE SIDEWAYS TO SEE THE SECOND COLUMN!
