NOTE: Credits withheld until judging concludes

Photographs are posted without credits until judging is complete. This is to protect the anonymity of entrants across all categories because many images are entered in multiple categories, including the portfolios. Once judging has concluded and POY has verified all winning entries, final results will be announced and full credits with photographers' names and affiliations will be displayed.
