The jury panel, made up of established experts in the photography field judged over 13,000 entries to finally select the winners in each of the 13 Professional and Amateur/Student categories.
These winners will compete for the Top 2 prizes – Photographer of the Year 2020 and Discovery of the Year 2020.
The final winners will be revealed at a special online event in conjunction with the Lucie Awards, details to be announced soon.
Bence Máté, world-renowned nature photographer also received an award at the prestigious competition said the following about his work:
"Photography for me is like breathing, nature is where I feel most comfortable.
Each photo is the result of long planning and hard work that often lasts years. A lot of things can be planned: the perspective, background and lights.
However, I have no influence on what will appear in front of me and when - I depend entirely on the weather and the whims of the animals, and everyday, every minute, something new happens."
