The winners of the 2022 Epson International Pano Awards have been announced and the overall winner of the 2022 Open Competition was Jinyi He from China with three entries, The vein, Purple World and Rainbow Canyon.
“I am very honored to receive the 2022 Epson Pano Award as Open Photographer of the Year. It is very special for me to be recognized for the projects shot in my childhood hometown of Xinjiang, China,” said Jinyi.
“As a landscape photographer, I am always passionate about exploring magnificent Chinese landscapes that are rarely known to Western photographers. I dedicate myself to capturing their precious but hidden beauty. I believe that the most powerful photographs come from the heart and not from the brain. Sincerely feelings on the road always brings me different inspirations, perspectives and appreciations for our planet”.
The Epson International Pano Awards showcase the work of panoramic photographers worldwide and are the largest competition for panoramic photography. This year the competition received 4,129 entries from 1,197 professional and amateur photographers in 98 countries.
The awards were established in 2009 by Australian landscape photographer David Evans (2015 AIPP Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year) with the support of Epson Australia and have since grown into a collaboration of dedicated professional photographers, industry professionals and sponsors.
