15 Winning Entries From The Siena International Photo Awards.

Every year photographers from all over the world make submissions to try and win a Siena International Photo Award. Over the years, it has become the photography contest with the highest number of entrants ever. The last contest received submissions from people representing over one hundred counties.

Not only do plenty of people submit pictures to the contest, but hundreds attend the event each year in person in Teatro dei Rozzi. The event has become so popular that it’s now streamed live over the internet so people can watch from all over the world.

Siena has become the annual destination for photographers looking for one of their prestigious awards. It could be called the Super Bowl of photography as it’s one of the most attended and watched events in the field.

Winning one of these awards means that a photographer is truly one of the best in the world at capturing something spectacular in pictures. When you see some of these below you’ll know that you are looking at some of the best there is without a doubt.
