The International Photography Award has been supporting and recognising outstanding talents in photography for more than a decade.

During this year's event, more than 50 Hungarian entries arrived to the worldwide contest, both in the professional and non-professional/student categories.

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."
