Amazing Winners and Finalists of All About Photo Awards 2020
The prestigious photo competition, All About Photo Awards - The Mind's Eye, organized by All About Photo is pleased to reveal the winning photographers of 2020.

A panel of 7 expert jurors including Elizabeth Avedon (Photography book and exhibition designer, independent curator and writer), Laurent Baheux (Photographer, UN Ambassador for the environment and active protector of wildlife), Alex Cammarano (Founder and CEO of Daylighted), Julia Dean (Photographer, Educator, Writer, and Executive Director/ Founder of the Los Angeles Center of Photography - LACP), Sandrine Hermand-Grisel (Photographer, Founder & Editor of All About Photo), Ann Jastrab (Executive Director, Center for Photographic Art, Carmel, CA), and Juli Lowe (Director, Catherine Edelman Gallery) selected the 40 winning photographs.

The 5th annual competition attracted an extremely high caliber of photographs from around the world.

The majority of this year's submissions were color photographs and yet 4 of the 5 first place images are B&W. Unlike previous years, it also seems that the jurors were more attracted to beautiful and soothing images rather than violent and unsettling ones. Perhaps a subconscious need has arisen in each one of us to escape the terrible events that are happening in the world right now. It is also worth noting that photography is often perceived as an art form still dominated by men, but this edition proves the contrary! Four out of the top five prizes have been won by women photographers!

The winner and Photographer of the Year 2020 is Monica Denevan (USA) with her image Across the River, Burma from the series Songs of the River: Portraits from Burma.
