Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Domonkos Josza
A clear and interesting narrative combined with a strong mood made this image stand out for us, with everything unified in the scene’s style. Overall it’s a great idea and execution.

2nd place by Iván Batalla

This entry grabs our attention with an immersive scene, complete with music and attention to detail, right down to the character and map in the bridge of the boat. The scene also really gives us the sense of the storm at sea.

3rd place by Fabian Klingmann

Great composition and colour choice really bring this image together; the style is interesting and engaging, and the environment has a great sense of depth.
