Portrait Award Editors' Picks of November 2021

“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” — Edward Steichen.

Following the results of the 2021 Portrait Award (judged by acclaimed American artist Dan Winters), 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.

We received a wealth of incredibly powerful submissions spanning all continents and genres, from classic social documentary to fine art, street, and fashion. Unfortunately, as always, we couldn’t give an award to every entrant, and so had to narrow it down to those we felt were most absorbing 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.

Congratulations to all selected artists: Chris Noltekuhlmann, Justin Keene, Mustapha El Basri, Terry Graham, Goran Jovic, Cédric Dasesson, Marios Forsos, Julia Autz, Tom Potisit, Natalya Saprunova, Arber Sefa, René Fietzek, Paolo Barretta, Alexander Metcalfe,

2022 Landscape AWARD Deadline: 30 November 2022

When taking a picture of a landscape, just like in a portrait or a scene, photographers attempt to tell a story.

From dramatic rural vistas to urban panoramics, or seemingly-abstract aerial compositions, this month we want to see images that showcase our planet’s diverse and beautiful topography.⁠

All approaches are valid and we want to see as many different styles and compositions as possible!


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