[P]hotographers from all over the world submitted more than 800 entries in the following categories: People and Portraits; Places, Landscapes and Drone photography; Nature, Science and Animals; Documentary/Social and Political Photojournalism; Still Life; Abstract; and Conceptual.

A panel of local curators and artists judged the submissions and selected the top three images from each of the seven categories. One additional image was voted People’s Choice winner by participating photographers and their peers, bringing the total number of images in the exhibition to 22. Other than U.S.-based photographers, the final exhibition lineup includes contestants from Russia, the UK, South Korea, and China.

In addition to being exhibited in the museum’s Community Gallery, the winners’ work also will be exhibited on FMoPA’s exterior LED sign.
