2019 Finalists

Welcome to the 2019 finalists’ page. Here you will find the names of all the photographers who have been shortlisted in the 2019 awards. 

All finalists have been emailed to request their prints, high-resolution files and RAW files. 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 it’s 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 20,000 images were submitted from photographers in more than 140 countries, so to be shortlisted is a significant achievement in itself.
