The Annual Photography Awards (APA) has announced the Overall and category winners for its 2021 competition. A total of 1,564 photographers from 54 countries entered their work in a collection of categories, including abstract, architecture, landscape, photojournalism, portrait, street and fine art, as well as an overall ‘Photographer of the Year.’ Martin Stranka won the title of Photographer of the Year 2021 for his series ‘Boyhood,’ which came with a $1,000 cash prize. Eight other category winners received a $500 cash prize.
The winning entries were selected from a jury consisting of professional photographers, including Vadim Sherbakov. Most entries called for a series of photographs to be submitted. The series are linked within the image description for each photo in the gallery. APA is now accepting entries for their 2022 competition.
