A total of 50 world-renowned photo editors and digital experts from international publications in the news, photography and sports industries will choose the finalists – sorting through over tens of thousands of images to do so.
Each judge will vote in three rounds – first for the five finalist images and then for the one Category Winner in each of the eleven categories. From the eleven category winning images they will vote for the Overall Winner.
Judges will base their decisions on a mix of composition, technical superiority, creativity, impact, artistic flair and overall qualities of photographic excellence.
The Judges for the Image Quest 2019 will be announced soon.
