Open Call Award Editors’ Picks of October 2023

Following the results of last month’s Open Call competition – judged by renowned VII Photo and National Geographic Photographer Maggie Steber – we want to share some of the competition entries that, despite not making the final selection, captivated us with their skill, creativity and overall strength.

From striking portraits to breathtaking landscapes and compelling documentary imagery, this collection spans almost the entire photographic spectrum. We are genuinely honored to spotlight the work of these 15 exceptionally talented photographers, whose work in our opinion, exemplifies the profound potential of the medium.
