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’m deeply honoured to receive the 2022 Epson Pano Award as Open Photographer of the Year. It is very special for me to get recognised for the works shot in my childhood hometown Xinjiang, China” said Jinyi.
“As a landscape photographer, I’m always passionate about exploring majestic Chinese landscapes rarely known to western photographers. I dedicate myself to capturing their precious but hidden beauty. I believe the most powerful photos come from one’s heart instead of one’s brain. Heartfelt feelings on the road always bring me different inspirations, perspectives, and appreciations of our planet.”
The Epson International Pano Awards showcases the work of panoramic photographers worldwide and is 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 founded in 2009 by Australian landscape photographer David Evans (2015 AIPP Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year) with the support of Epson Australia, and has since grown into a collaboration between dedicated professional photographers, industry professionals and sponsors.
