We are proud to share with you the latest award-winning photographs from our 4th international competition celebrating the very best in documentary family photography.

Guest judges for the Humor category were documentary photographers Khalilah Hall and Kholood Eid along with photo editor Parker Eshelman. Each judge evaluated every single submission received and selected thirty or less of their favourite photographs to move forward to the final round.

Award-winners were then chosen during our live stream of the final round with judges Kirsten Bethmann, Jenna Shouldice and Kholood Eid. Throughout the live stream, viewers had the opportunity to watch the unfiltered discussions and constructive feedback from the judges as they collectively chose the awards given in each category.

In this gallery, the first 7 photos have received awards and are ranked from 1st to 7th place. Honorable Mentions (if selected by the judges) are given equal weight in no particular order.
