Editors' Picks Portrait Award

“It’s a world, someone’s face. When I capture it, I see the future of the world.” – Malick Sidibé

Following the results of last month’s Portrait Photography Award, judged by British photographer Jimmy Nelson, we want to share some of the competition entries that didn’t make it to the final selection round but impressed by their overall quality and stayed with us.

The competition was a great success and we received an incredible range of excellent materials, and although we couldn’t give an award to every entrant, we want to share some of the many talented photographers whose images struck us and are well worthy of exposure.

Thanks again to all of you for taking part and sharing your beautiful work with us!
