This year’s contest attracted more than 122,000 entries from 170 countries. The photographs were judged in six different competition categories, including Professional, Open, and Student Focus. The organizers have been kind enough to share some of their winning images with In Focus, gathered below. See also the shortlist of winners, earlier on In Focus.

A well deserved award for Andrea. Really strong portraits.
Lomography recently announced their new Belair X 6-12 camera.
The coolest thing about it is that it shoots on 120 film at a 6x12 ratio, something no other camera’s done before! It makes for slightly panoramic photos, but if you want, you can switch to 6x9 or 6x6.
