The 2018 All About Photo Award Winners | LENSCRATCH

It was a privilege and an honor to be one of the jurors for this new edition of All About Photo Awards 2018. First of all, I can’t thank enough Liu Bolin, Eli Klein, Crista Dix, Marco Gualizzini, Elisabeth Mouchy, Ann Jastrab and Michael Itkoff for their patience and hard work. We received more than 4,200 images from around the world and it was a long and difficult task to select the images that would make it to the second round. After spending a lot of time watching the images over and over again we selected around 900 images from 362 photographers. The overall quality was amazing and many more photographers could have been featured in our winners’ gallery but in the end I hope you like the ones we have selected. – Sandrine Hermand Grisel
