Siena International Photo Awards 2020 - Winners Announced
The winners of the 2020 Siena International Photo Awards have just been announced, with French photographer Greg Lecœur taking home the overall prize of Photo of the Year for his photograph Frozen Mobile Home.
His striking image that captures crabeater seals swimming around an iceberg also won him Underwater Photographer of the Year 2020.
When he won Underwater Photographer of the Year, he commented on the subject matter of his winning image and said, “Massive and mysterious habitats, little is known about how wildlife thrives around these mobile homes. Icebergs fertilise the oceans by carrying nutrients from land that spark blooms of marine life and also provide homes for larger animals, like these crabeater seals.”
From a pool of tens of thousands of entries, taken by photographers from over 150 different countries, just a select number of photographs have been chosen as this year’s category winners.
There are ten photo categories and one video category. The winners of each category are listed below.
Documentary & Photojournalism
Sports in Action
Architecture & Urban spaces
Animals in their Environment
The Beauty of Nature
Fascinating Faces and Characters
Journeys and Adventures
