Each year, the Tokyo International Foto Awards jury panel receives thousands of stunning images from photographers, making the selection process harder than ever. While they weren't chosen as category winners, they are victorious in their own right: our favourite TIFA Honorable Mentions from 2020 show us unique perspectives in all the categories.
A dream-like scape, a cyclist and a famous house in Berlin, the Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders Haus. The composition of this photo is a testament to perfect geometry, a sharp-sighted discovery form the Spain-based photographer.
A photo shoot for a sustainable contemporary fashion brand, One Tribe. The main mission was to bring out the feeling of empathy from the viewers and potential customers.

Typhoon season means the death of many ships at sea. The more our climate changes, the more we will experience weather extremities and the more ships will be in danger.
An homage to an artist lost and a photographer locked in during Covid-times. The end result is an inspired, surrealistic photo series that makes us ponder upon our very own ideas and creativity.
