For the past two years in Italy, the  Siena International Photo Awards have been held. This year, after photographers from over 100 countries in 11 categories entered, the jury came to a conclusion. The winners were revealed at a ceremony in Italy on the 29th of October. The winners will have their winning photographs displayed in the Beyond the Lens exhibition until November 30th.

When I was in school, the arts were always secondary to practical studies. But the world needs more artists like these. That’s reason enough to put more emphasis on the arts in schools.

Below are the participants photographs and they are all breathtaking. I don’t know how the judges were able to choose between them. Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
