Editors' Picks Visual Storytelling Award

“The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve, but a reality to experience.” – Frank Herbert

Following the results of last month’s Visual Storytelling Award judged by American photographer and VII Photo Agency member Ed Kashi, we want to share some of the competition entries that didn’t make it to the final selection but impressed by their overall strength and stayed with us.

The competition showed an incredible variety of storytelling narratives and skills featuring stories across the whole planet. Although we couldn’t reward every participant we would like to share the work of some of the talented photographers whose images impressed us and are well worthy of exposure.

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