Winners of the 2019 Epson International Pano Awards

The top-scoring panoramic photos entered in the tenth Epson International Pano Awards have just been announced. The contest is meant to showcase the best work of panoramic photographers around the world. Organizers reported that they received 4,913 entries from 1,258 photographers in 72 countries this year, competing for the top spots in five categories, for several special awards, and for some of the $50,000 in cash and prizes offered.
