If you want to know who is it going to be awarded for each chategory, you have to wait until October 28th when the final cerimony of the contest will tale place. 

On the last edition, many amateur photographers did not expect to be awarded. Passion and talent sometimes succeed and overcome years of preparation and experience. 

To keep alive the interest of the Contest every day, the Picture Editor of the Siena International Photo Awards presents the “Photo of the Day”. It is chosen among thousands of images from all over the world.
This is an interesting way to anticipate the expectations around the contest. It is a sort of “appetizer” waiting for the maincourse which is going to be the BEYOND THE LENS photo exhibition.
It will take place in a modern building “Ex-Distilleria Lo Stellino” in Via Fiorentina in Siena from October 28th to December 2nd.
