Spectacular sights in the 7th Fine Art Photography Awards
The winners of the 7th Fine Art Photography Awards present a surreal assortment of shots from sci-fi styled snaps of subways to spectacularly sublime landscapes. We’ve handpicked our highlights from this year’s massive collection of celebrated images.
Founded in 2014, the Fine Art Photography Awards is an exceptionally broad photo contest. Spanning 20 categories, each with separate Professional and Amateur sections, this is a big and diverse competition with no real overarching thread other than celebrating creativity and innovation.
Recalling prior years, the 7th annual contest again reveals its strongest images through a deeper dive into the shortlisted category entries. These categories cover all bases: Nature, Wildlife/Animals, Architecture, Fashion, Travel, Portrait, Cityscape, Street Photography, Night Photography, Landscape, and plenty more.
Like many photography competitions at the moment, many of the entries reflect the ongoing global pandemic. Some of those entries simply highlight how strange our urban environments are when stripped of large crowds, while others present creative takes on pandemic life, such as Connor Young’s shot of a lone giraffe at a zoo in Vienna seemingly wondering where all the people have gone.
