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.

Published December 21, 2021 - 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,
