It certainly wasn’t easy for the jurys to select their favorites. Our jurys had to choose from more than 1,400 amateur photos and 339 professional pictures. The sheer amount of ambitious professional photos and the amateurs‘ serious photography skills truly impressed us. Submissions came in from all 16 countries along the tracks – all the way from the North Cape to Salerno (E1) or from Boulogne-sur-Mer to St-Petersburg (R1).


We would like to thank all the professional and amateur photographers for participating and hope you thoroughly enjoyed it. The winners, selected photos and photos series can be viewed here: winners and rankings Amateur Award 2018 and winners and shortlist Professional Award 2018. The winners have been announced on Wednesday, 15 August 2018 in Detmold.
