Winners of the Depositphotos Photography Contest 2020
This summer international photobank Depositphotos launched their first photography contest to support independent photographers in their artistic and professional pursuits. The theme of the contest was “Authenticity 2.0” to encourage participants to share their vision of authenticity, capturing candid moments in everyday life. In just one month and a half, 1884 photographers submitted their works to the contest and shared over 5,200 images under the hashtag #authenticity_is.

The competition was judged by independent international award-winning photographers Daro Sulakauri, Rosa Roth, Eldar Khamitov, Mikael Theimer, and Kate Kondratieva

They evaluated the works based on the following criteria: adherence to theme, uniqueness of concept, creative composition and framing, technical excellence/execution, overall artistic impression.
