Winners from the 2018 Siena International Photo Awards

Whittled down from 48,000 entries from 156 countries, judges had a difficult time deciding the winners of the 2018 Siena International Photo Awards.

Every year, the competition includes a special category. This year, it was entitled Splash of Colours, seeking out exceptional colour compositions. In total, the entrants competed in 11 categories, ranging from stunning landscapes to subtle portraits and dramatic sports moments.

Photos that wowed the jury this year include a leopard seal on the brink of eating a penguin, lightning ripping through a huge volcanic eruption, and a car lost in a sea of sheep among others.
