The contest received more than 22,000 entries from over 150 countries, and In Focus showcased the winners from the three categories of People, Places, and Nature, with the captions provided by the photographers.
Readers of this blog know my antipathy for photography contests, but I always keep an eye on two; TPOTY (The Travel Photographer Of The Year) and The National Geographic, which I think are the most legitimate of all the contests out there.
I took a look at the submissions and the results, and since this blog is all about my pontifications, I won't disappoint you. My favorite to have won the overall contest, in my judgment, should've been Ulrich Lambert's Sri Lanka's traditional stilt fishermen, which was made in Midigama, a surfer's paradise at the southern tip of the island.
