We’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2011 LensCulture Exposure Awards – the best in global photography and multimedia. The nine top winners and 25 honorable mention winners represent work from 14 countries. 

This award-winning work was selected from entries that came in from 48 countries. The quality, and sheer amount of submissions, amazed (and almost overwhelmed) the members of our international jury

The winning entries cover a broad and diverse range of subject matter, stylistic approaches, and technical processes. So, in many ways, the judges’ selections represent a true snapshot of some of the best photography and multimedia as it is being practiced today. 

Enjoy this winning photography here at LensCulture.
