Grand Prize, Photographer of the Year

1st Place – Travel
Lonely Boat – Liu Bo
“The man, the boat, and me. I felt a connection in that moment, people are so small between heaven and earth.”
Location: Da Nang , Vietnam Shot on iPhone 8 Plus
2nd Place – Travel
Tourists at the Dunes-Death Valley – James Cowlin
“A bus load of tourist had just arrived and people were walking out into the dunes. The bright light of midday accented the dunes and the colorful clothes of the tourists.”
3rd Place – Travel
Palanquera – Alfonso Ordosgoitia
“In this photo that I took in Cartagena – Colombia, I was exploring the contrast between the colonial architecture of the city, next to a “Palanquera” : a Colombian touristic symbol that represents the group of runaway African slaves, now known for selling fruits on the streets with colorful dresses – A “costume” that disguises the episodes of slavery caused by the Spanish colonization.”
