But who are the real protagonist of this event?
Photographers: professionals, amateurs and students coming from 130 countries.
They are the artists able to capture the moment, the unique and unrepeatable moment that will make just unique their photo.

The themes chosen for the competition were various and left ample space also for modern experiments with unusual subjects.

Again this year the selection is entrusted to a jury of professional photographers.  They have  the hard task to choose, select and eventually award the best photos of the contest. At this time the entries are already closed. From now to mid June there will be the selection of all the pics.

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 Contest Photo Exhibition. It will take place inside the Palazzo Pubblico di Siena (Magazzini del Sale) from the end of October for about 1 month. All the awarded pictures will be on show there.

The PANGEA prize is the symbol of the SIPA contest. A purest crystal ball that represents Earth but also a drop of light that feeds photography. A symbol that wants to convey the passion and perfection of the sought-after light in every shot.
