The three Grand Prize-winning photographs that captured the hearts of the judges
The Grand Prizes were “Dragon Clouds” by Domcar Calinawan Lagto from the Philippines, “Airshow” by Piotr Cebula from Poland and “Fearless Eagle” by Dou Chuanli from China. Each winner will receive $10,000 (before taxes) from the XMAGE creation fund, to support their photography and encourage them to continue using Huawei devices in the future.
Judge's comment: Only when a photographer goes beyond conventional limits can we see scenes that are on the verge of disappearing, unusual or difficult to see. — Chen Xiaobo, ninth vice president of the China Photographers Association.
Judge's comment: The image raises more questions than it answers, exciting the viewer's imagination. Will the plane land safely or crash? Where is he going? Who is the silhouette of the man in the foreground? There is a sense of story development and movement in this photo that invites the viewer to fill in the gaps. — Jessica Hromas, Australian portrait photographer.
Judge's comment: In addition to what is outside, it is even more important to find the inside of the subjects, their characters or their emotions at that moment. We have seen many eagles in paintings, photographs and videos, but I will definitely always remember this one: it captures the true soul of the eagle. Beneath its plump, thick feathers are its piercing, intimidating eyes. — Pei Tongtong, Chinese fashion photographer.
New categories that inspire spectacular creativity
This year's competition featured a variety of categories including Night Walk, Portrait, Art
The 17 best-in-class winners and 34 runner-up winners were selected from each category and will each receive $1,500 and $1,000, courtesy of the XMAGE Creation Fund.
