The judging panel reviewed all the photos in each of the 12 categories (Landscape, Panoramic, Street, HDR, After Dark, Portrait, Wedding, Retro and meticulously scored the photographs out of 100 (100 being a theoretical perfect capture) on several criteria such as sharpness, exposure, composition, lighting and uniqueness. Nonetheless, the wow factor was also an important element of the judging. It was a real challenge for the judges to pick only the best… of the best.

The Top 50 Images – All Categories

We receive tons of fabulous entries every single year and we’d love to reward them all but that’s simply not possible. We can however give credit where credit is due.
