Results 2022

Traditionally the WBF Photo Award are the great finals of all awards of the past festival! About 1.000 submissions from photographers from all over the world were showing the beauty of the festival and the artworks. 

For the jury it is always an exhausting event, where at the end the results are also discussed intensively. The pictures are examined in detail and often the question arises why a photo shown on the web was not rated higher. Well, the quality of a picture also lies in the details, which the jury appreciates accordingly.

Winner's works were indeed outstanding if they could overtake that amount of pictures. Beside money prizes, the winners of each category are awarded with a unique WBF trophy which we would like to hand over live at the upcoming festival.

All entries can be found on our Photo Gallery Server.
