Fashion Award Editors’ Picks of February 2023

“Chic is nothing but the right nothing.” – Mario Testino

Following the results of the 2023 Fashion Award ( judged by Vogue Italia’s visual director Alessia Glaviano.), the editorial team is delighted to share some of the competition entries that didn’t make the final selection but impressed in their quality, variety, and overall beauty.

It was our first time hosting a fashion-themed award, and we were incredibly excited to see how photographers would respond. They certainly didn’t disappoint.  We received a wealth of stunning submissions from across the globe, encompassing a wide variety of styles, from classic black & white portraiture that evoked the work of the genre’s most iconic exponents, to cutting-edge, experimental imagery that pushed the boundaries of photographic storytelling.

Unfortunately, as always, we couldn’t give an award to every entrant and thus had to narrow it down to those we felt were most compelling and which best represented the competition theme. However, we want to highlight some of the many talented artists whose images resonated with us, and which we believe are truly deserving of exposure.

Published March 16, 2023 - Congratulations to all selected artists: Lisa Powers, Evgenia Murashova, Mauro Matalone, Salvatore Montemagno, Blake Sutherland, Maciej Siennicki, Olga Szewczuk, Elija Kulmer, Filip Haglund, Simon-Paul Erich Wilhelm Schempershofe, Carly Zavala, Yana Kalina,
