The winners and finalists of the All About Photo The Mind's Eye Awards 2020 have been announced, and there are a number of fascinating takeaways from the results.
One of the big takeaways is that, while the majority of entries to the competition were color photographs, black-and-white photos accounted for four of the top five first-place images, which are awarded a $10,000 prize.
Also notable is that while photography is still a largely male-dominated art form, four of the top five prizes were won by female photographers – including the winning image. Indeed, the winning image 'Across the River, Burma' is a black-and-white photograph that was shot by a woman, Monica Denevan.
Additionally, two of the top five images featured female subjects, with one (the winner) depicting a male, an awe-inspiring aerial landscape and a stunning wildlife shot of stampeding wildebeest.
