Recently, 25 photographers from 12 countries were announced as winners and finalists for All About Photo (AAP) Magazine’s #17 PORTRAIT competition. Once a replica of paintings, and a privilege reserved for the upper class, portraiture is much more ubiquitous these days. What sets an average portrait apart from a memorable one, however, is timing – that moment where a photographer captures the personality of their subject.
The top three winners received cash awards totally $1,000 and will be featured in the AAP Winners Gallery, and published in the printed issue of AAP Magazine #17 Portrait alongside the other finalists. All selected photos can be viewed here.
