The international photography competition chose the winning images from four different categories—Portrait, Lifestyle, Fine Art, and Documentary & Street.

It beautifully captures the profile of a young African boy, set against a chalky, cracked patch of earth. Winning 1st place in the Fine Art category, Polish photographer Kamila J. Gruss’s image, Dark, has an incredibly ethereal charm, and perfectly captures the delicate beauty of her young female subject.

And in the Documentary & Street category, Chinese photographer Ya Kuang won 1st place for his photo, Desire, capturing the harsh desperation seen in children suffering in poverty.
