With entries by photographers from over 100 countries in 11 categories, the jury of the second Siena International Photo Awards had their hands full to select the winning images. The winners were revealed at a ceremony held in Siena, Italy on October 29 and the victors will have their images displayed through November 30 in the Beyond the Lens exhibition organized during the Siena Art Photo Travel Festival.

Though the contest is only in its second year, the breadth and quality of the photographs has already made it an important staple of the international photography community. Travel, nature, people and portrait, architecture, and wildlife are just some of the categories filled with photographs that inspire. Some, like Giuseppe Mario Famiani’s The Power of Naturedemonstrate the incredible force of our environment, while others, like Jacob Ehrbahn’s Refugee Stream, capture the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. Below we highlight some of our favorites from this year’s breathtaking competition.
