Color Photography Award Editors' Picks of June 2021

Following the results of last month’s Color Photography Award judged by Sotheby’s Head of Photography Department: Brandei Estes⁠, 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!

Congratulations to all selected artists: Michael Morgan, Paul Lichte, Ron Mayhew, Nicholas Wong, Ali Smith, Jason Marino, Dina Laraki, Sara Zanini, Trevor Cole, Jason Chan,

Competition Judge: STEVE MCCURRY

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it. Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This summer we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all its splendor and trigger our memories. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary… We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually – Let’s travel together!


1st Prize: $1000 · 2nd Prize: $600 · 3rd Prize: $400
