A message from the curator

Needless to say this is a year to remember. We thought new entry and judging systems would keep us busy enough, then the world changed. We doubled down and got to work, and the upshot is a record year for the Pano Awards with 5859 entries from 1452 photographers in 96 countries. We’re overwhelmed with the level of support from entrants and sponsors, especially EPSON, and we thank you all so very much and also congratulate the winners and highest scoring entrants for 2020…the year that changed us all.

David Evans

A message from EPSON

Epson has been a proud sponsor of the Pano Awards for the past 11 years now and is delighted with the ongoing growth of its popularity each year, particularly in 2020 given the unprecedented year it’s been. The competition continues to attract more aspiring photographers as well as repeat entrants as the bar is raised every year and the images submitted are nothing short of spectacular. Epson is proud that its technology helps the photographers realise their passion and bring these amazing images to life. Another tough year to judge the incredible entries and Epson congratulates this year’s winners and thanks all the entrants for their interest and passion.
