The Winners Of The 2020 All About Photo Awards

“Across the River, Burma” © Monica Denevan. Winner, All About Photo Awards

For the fifth year, the All About Photo Awards shines a spotlight on high-caliber international photography. The 2020 edition is packed with exceptional work and, in particular, five photographs were selected as the year’s top images. Notably, the contest shows that photography isn’t always male dominated, with female photographers winning four of the top five slots.

American based photographer Monica Denevan won the photo contest with a striking image from her series, Songs of the River: Portraits from Burma. Since 2000, Denevan has traveled extensively to Burma and spends her time documenting life outside the cities. Her photo of a man sitting on a fishing boat, with his back turned to us as he looks out into the river, is a masterfully balanced work.

Denevan shares her place in the top five with many other worthy photographers. This includes Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti, whose portrait of a woman posing outside her Tampa home with her firearm collection is either unsettling or empowering depending on your thoughts about gun control. Galimberti’s is the only glimpse of color among the winner’s circle, with the rest of the top 5 rounded out with remarkable black and white photographs.

Along with the winners, the expert jury, which includes professional photographers, curators, and gallery directors, also selected 35 photographs worthy of particular merit. These photographs show the rich diversity of our planet, with images ranging from a portrait of a Suri woman in Africa to underwater views of marine life. The winners will have their work featured in a special print issue of AAP magazine and are awarded $10,000. A selection of other photographers from the top 40 will also be invited to display their portfolios on All About Photo.

The winners of the 2020 All About Photo Awards each share their unique perspective on the world.
