Editors' Picks Documentary Award

Following the results of last month’s Documentary Photography Award judged by American photographer Mustafah Abdulaziz, we want to share some of the competition entries that didn’t make it to the final selection but impressed by their overall strength and stayed with us.

The competition showed fantastic storytelling skills from all over the world and the award was a great success. However, we couldn’t give an award to every entrant and we would like to share the work of some of the many talented photographers whose images impressed us and are well worthy of exposure.

Thanks again to all of you for taking part in the award and sharing your personal work with us!
