First Prize: Sasikumar RamachandranSecond Prize: Dimpy Bhalotia

“What makes an image stand out is a combination of content and form: what it shows, and how it shows it. What makes an image not only stand out but also leave a mark on those who view it, is a visual event, something that goes beyond the image itself, that transcends its borders and that cannot easily be described in words. It is a very particular strand that stems from a unique place that each photographer carries inside.

– The two images I have selected, have a portion of that.” – Nikos Economopoulos

3rd Prize: Patrik Bergström

“Timing is (almost) everything and what we have here is a carefully composed moving still underlining the photographer’s intuition. By choosing a precise point of view and recognising the photographic possibilities of a seemingly banal moment; All elements and distinct narratives eventually connected by a meticulous framing, one single photograph telling multiple stories with agility: A perfect street shot.” – The Independent Photographer Editors
