Award Winning Photos That All Have ONE Thing In Common, And It’s Stunning!

Shutterbugs from around the world submitted more than 2,000 entries of their best photographs that include an astronaut’s golden visor, paralympians on the road to glory, a painted elephant, scenes of suburban Japan, champion slamdunkers and burned children’s toys are among the entries to the Association of Photographers open awards. Formed in 1968, the AOP is one of the most prestigious professional photographers’ associations in the world.
