Leslie Latchman - United Kingdom

Congratulation to Les for a winning photographic entry. Les captures the movement and proximity of flying gulls, warm seaside light and a carefree, holiday mood that make us feel connected and immersed in this Moroccan seaside town. The image processing, use of color and shooting style across the image set is consistent and cohesive, helping to tell the story. Beautiful work. 

– Dan & Zora Avila, The Travel Shooters

Amanda Garcia - Mexico

Congratulations to Amanda for this amazing winning video entry captured at the Venice Carnival. The work demonstrates delicate, nuanced storytelling, with elevated atmospherics and emotion as key subjects of the video. The use of focus, shot angle, subject variation and music, together with beautifully emotive color grading, demonstrate attention to detail and great skill in visual storytelling.

Emilia Miranda - Chile

Congratulations to Emilia for a winning photo entry. The brave and unique stylistic choice of image processing enhances the clean, beautifully composed images that capture emotion with an uncluttered style. The image set from the Chilean seaside is cohesive, yet not slavishly repetitious and we commend your work that shows creative risk-taking, pushing the boundary of photographic technique in the pursuit of storytelling. 

– Dan & Zora Avila, The Travel Shooters
