Today, the Epson International Pano Award winners were announced for the 2021 competition. 5,378 entries from 1,245 professional and amateur photographers in 97 countries were submitted this year, an impressive feat given the worldwide pandemic. Joshua Hermann was the Overall Winner with his images of the swamps and marshlands in Louisiana, USA.
Daniel Trippolt won the Amateur category for a variety of landscape images. ‘I discovered my passion for photography when I was 12 years old when my father gave me my first camera. Every free second of my free time was used to take photos of everything and everyone. From animal photography to sports, architecture and portrait photography, I tried everything and found my greatest passion and hobby in landscape photography. Here I am very much into hyperreal landscape photography, which distinguishes mefrom most Austrian landscape photographers.’
Winners received cash prizes and printing products from Epson. Entries for the 2022 competition will open up in April. All winners and finalists can be viewed on the Pano Awards website.
