Editors' Picks Color Photography Award

Following the results of last month’s Color Photography Award judged by Magnum Photos’ Global Education Director Shannon Ghannam, we want to share some of the competition entries that didn’t make it to the final round but impressed us by their overall strength and quality and innovative way to respond to the theme.

We received an incredible variety of images from many talented photographers and even though we couldn’t give an award to every entrant we are delighted to share the work of some of the artists whose images stayed with us and are well worthy of exposure.

Thank you for taking part in the award and sharing your work with us!
