The overall top prize of Photographer of the Year went to Warsaw-based portrait photographer Kate Phellini. However, as is often the case in these massive competitions, there are some truly awe-inspiring images in the smaller category finalists and winners.

Gabriella Achabinha’s exploration of classic Eastern European architecture took out The Architect category, presenting these beautiful brutalist structures with subtle pastel coloring added to generate a ghostly, utopian kind of nostalgia. Another incredible winning series is Marlon Villaverde’s document of his local town’s extraordinary annual religious ritual involving carrying a glass carriage through the streets.
