COMPETITION JUDGED BY STEVE MCCURRY

Photographers don’t come much more iconic than Steve McCurry – the Magnum Photos member is celebrated as creator of several of the most seminal images of our time – with many gracing the covers of National Geographic, TIME and Vogue Magazines. Across several decades and countless countries he has captured ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike, always with a rich humanity and powerful simplicity.

He has published several best-selling books including The Imperial Way (1985), Monsoon (1988), South Southeast (2000), Looking East (2006), On Reading (2016) and Stories & Dreams: Portraits of Childhood (2021) each emphasizing the beauty of the world through the small but significant moments of life.

McCurry has been recognized with some of the most prestigious awards in the industries including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award, and an unprecedented four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest.
