Billed as the world's largest single photography competition, the 2018 edition of the EyeEm Awards drew more than 700,000 submissions from 100,000 photographers around the world. The jury have now sifted through this mountain of imagery to present this year's finalists. Here we take a look at the best of the bunch.

The EyeEm Awards accepted submissions in June and July this year and was open to all photographers, no matter their experience, skill or backgrounds. The jury, made up of industry figures from Adidas, WeTransfer, Archdaily, and Focus magazine, assessed the submissions and sorted the 10 best ones into a range of categories.

The Architect category finalists include some simply stunning images, such as this shot of The MAAT Museum in Lisbon, Portugal.

Others, such as The Traveler category, tell unique tales of adventure, serendipity and sound technical skill.
