Portrait Award Editors’ Picks of May 2023

“There’s nothing more interesting than the landscape of the human face” – Irvin Kershner

Following our recent Portrait Award (judged by renowned British artist Jimmy Nelson), we’re excited to showcase some remarkable entries that, while not selected, impressed us with their quality, artistry and overall beauty.

We received a truly extraordinary number of stunning photographs, encompassing a myriad of styles and genres, including social documentary, fine art, street, and fashion. Regrettably, as always, we couldn’t honor every participant with an award, so we’ve curated a collection of images that truly absorbed us and that we feel best embodied the essence of the competition’s theme. It is truly a pleasure to shine a spotlight on this group of talented artists whose images are thoroughly deserving of recognition.

Published June 19, 2023 - Congratulations to all selected artists: Arber Sefa, Luiza Marinas, Vikram Kushwah, Karolina Wojtasik, Sara Bardotti, Rebecca Rubcke, Andreas Bleckmann, Pinkesh Bhati, Luis Oliván Tenorio, Devanshu Damle, Francesco Montemurri, Giovanna Aryafara, Curtis Callaway, Evgenia Murashova, Christian Bruni,
