Extraordinary Winning Entries from the Fine Art Photography Awards

The winners of the Fine Art Photography Awards were recently announced, and professional and amateurs alike have captured incredible sights from around the world. This creative contest boasted more than 3,000 submissions from 77 countries, with the subject matter as varied as the photographer’s location. But despite how different the winning entries may be, each image has the same qualities: they share the individual's vision, feelings, and their unique view of reality.

Photographs in the competition range from beautiful to haunting to optimistic. They invite us to roam with majestic Alaskan grizzly bears, witness awe-inspiring lightning strikes across eerily green water, and to gaze across vast sunlit fields.

Here are some of our favorite images from the Fine Art Photography Awards, but you can see all of the winners on the competition's online gallery.
