The 2013 Syngenta Photography Award attracted submissions from over 450 photographers for the Professional Commission, while some 2,000 entries were received for the Open Competition.

A distinguished international panel, chaired by the author and curator William A. Ewing, selected the six finalists for their artistic quality and interpretation of the rural-urban theme.

The images in this room are a special selection made by the Syngenta Photography Award judges.
